Killadelphia: Mixtape of a City

Photo by: Seth Rozin

This 2009 Heidi Award winner for Best Touring Production is a one-man show written and performed by Sean Christopher Lewis himself. Killadelphia challenges social norms and how Americans view murder through a deeper look at Philadelphia, a state with an alarmingly high murder rate.

Sean Christopher Lewis brings together over twenty different voices of prison inmates, guards, members of the community, Rush Limbaugh, and even the playwright himself through various monologues in this documentary style performance.

Performances March 5-14. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows at 7:30pm and Sunday shows at 2:00pm.

Tickets range from $12-$26 and are available through the Riverside Theatre Box Office at 213 N. Gilbert St., (319) 338-7672 or online at
