Nails Done Naturally
New to Center City is Naturale Salon, a clean, relaxing, and modern space to enjoy your manicure & pedicure. Offensive fumes are eliminated by adhering solely to services for natural nails- no artificial enhancements. All porous items such as nail files, buffers & orange wood sticks will be discarded after each use. Steel implements will be carefully brushed in antibacterial soap, soaked in hospital grade barbicide, then placed in a sleeve, allowing it to bake in a heat autoclave. The grand opening is on November 18.

Wajdi Mouawad's Seuls
Through the use of stunning imagery and physicality, Seuls tells the powerful story of a man who, as a child, moved to a new country from his home to escape civil war. As he loses himself in a new context and language, he soon realizes that his childhood emigration has begun to compromise his own sense of self—along with his capacity for happiness. Over the course of his performance, the character overcomes his self-doubt and finds release through color, sensation, and dream. Seuls was recently performed at France's La Colline – national theatre, a theater which Wajdi Mouawad joined as the Artistic Director this year. Seuls opens at the Wilma November 29 and runs through December 11.
