Quintessence Theatre Group is dedicated to the performance and adaptation of epic works of classic literature and drama for the contemporary stage, which ignites the mind through the power of the actor, design and spoken word. Quintessence Theatre exists to develop and produce theatre which is immediate and necessary, and that strives to attract new audiences to the art form by challenging its artists and audiences alike to consider what is essential in theatre and in human nature.
Quintessence Theatre Group was founded by Alexander Burns and Pamela Reichen in the fall of 2009. Previous productions include Shakespeare’s Othello, The Merchant of Venice, Measure For Measure and Henry V, Anouilh’s Antigone, Chekhov’s The Seagull, Goldoni’s The Venetian Twins,Plato’s Apology, Moliere’s Don Juan and The Misanthrope in an adaptation by Martin Crimp, Shaw’sArms and the Man, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Over the next five years Quintessence Theatre Group will work to establish an acting ensemble and a rotating repertory season at the historic Sedgwick Theater in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. As Quintessence Theatre’s home, the Sedgwick Theater, a 1928 art deco movie palace designed by William Lee, will regain its place as a jewel in Philadelphia’s cultural landscape.
