PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Diner En Blanc celebrates 10 years of secret all white dining

Diner en blanc has become a tradition in Philadelphia.

It’s an elegant stroll and al fresco dinner at a confidential spot in the city, where everyone is dressed in white.

Hence the name Diner en Blanc, and this year, when the annual dinner makes an appearance on Thursday 18 August, it will mark the 10th anniversary for the summertime staple.

The location is a surprise that will be announced to guests on the evening of the event.

You’ll pack a portable table with all your food, drink, and decorations, then meet at a designated gathering station before being guided to the secret location where a sea of ​​white gathers for a meal together.

It’s a night of glitz and glamor with friends you already have and those you will make at the event.

Longwood Gardens has 2 magical light shows to end the summer

Longwood Gardens is beautiful by day and now it’s magical at night.

As the sun sets over Longwood Gardens, Light: Installations by Bruce Munro puts on an incredible show.

He made his Longwood debut a decade ago and is now known around the world.

“The largest installation here has 18,000 lightbulbs. It’s breathtaking,” says Tom Warner, Director of Performing Arts at Longwood Gardens.

There are eight major installations in total, both indoors and outdoors.

At C-Scale in the exhibition hall, he has created a film that is projected onto over 9,000 CDs.

Green Flash in the East Conservancy is named for the mythical green flash that can occur when the sun reaches the horizon.

Outside at Ramada’s table, a thousand color-changing flamingos wade in the water beneath the Carillon Tower.

And with SOS, the sound of Morse code mixes with music.

The exhibition runs from Thursday to Sunday after dark.

Tickets for Lights are timed and the exhibition runs through October 30th. And there are special activities on the second Friday of September and October.

Watch Dreamgirls at Malcolm X Park for FREE

The hit film “Dreamgirls” will be revisited in a new way, with a West Philadelphia theater company performing the musical production for free in a legendary outdoor park.

Karen Rogers has the story on this week’s 6abc Loves the Arts.

Like the film, Theater in the X’s “Dreamgirls” follows a trio of black female singers as they sing and dance their way to R& B superstar in the 1960s and 70s.

“But these are Dreamgirls like you’ve never seen before. The music and the movement are totally new, totally unique,” says LaNeshe Miller-White, Executive Director of Theater in the X.

You will hear some classics.

“But the rest are original Will Brock compositions that span many decades,” says Miller-White.

The story is loosely based on The Supremes

“It’s a coming-of-age story. You have to deal with deception,” says Carlo Campbell, Co-Artistic Director and co-founder of Theater in the X.

The outdoor show takes place at Malcolm X Park.

“It’s just a center for culture,” says Miller-White.

And it’s the home base for Theater in the X.

“This is our ninth year,” says Miller-White.

“Bringing theater into the community, into the hood, and making it accessible,” says Walter DeShields, Co-Artistic Director and co-founder of Theater in the X.

“Besides providing opportunities for artists of color,” says Miller-White.

That’s why Theater in the ‘X’ took on that name.

“We’re the X factor,” says Campbell.

The company is headquartered and rehearsing at the Painted Bride’s new location in West Philadelphia.

“It’s kind of an art sanctuary,” says Campbell.

Both organizations have a mission to bring art to the neighborhood. And with “Dreamgirls” you get a strong story.

“It appeals to all of us to pursue that dream that sometimes seems impossible, but not impossible,” says DeShields.

And an incredible show.

“You’re going to see the hottest dance moves you could see on Tik Tok today,” says Miller-White.

“Come out and enjoy the show. They’re going to be blown away,” says DeShields.

Dreamgirls is set at Malcolm X Park from August 18th to 21st. The show is free but donations to Theater in the X are much needed and appreciated.
