‘Two Street,’ a gay Mummer rom-com, surpasses goal on Indiegogo

Local theater troupe Tribe of Fools went the crowdfunding route in order to create one of the more uniquely Philly plays you’re going to see at the FringeArts Festival this year. They recently surpassed their goal of  $5,000 with a few weeks to spare.
