The Delaware Valley Brigade of the Pennsylvania Browncoats proudly presents a Philadelphia area Can’t Stop The Serenity (CSTS) 2018 event in support of Equality Now -- a charity screening of Joss Whedon’s space western movie Serenity. The film is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed TV series Firefly. The CSTS Philly shindig will also include the music of comedy rock star Mikey Mason of "She Don't Like Firefly" fame, trivia, games, raffles, and other ways we aim to misbehave, while happily doing good works. All proceeds of the event go to Equality Now.
Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good! Since 2006, fans have organized screenings of Joss Whedon's Serenity to raise funds and awareness to support Equality Now in their work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. Join us as we aim to misbehave for a good cause!

Mikey Mason is a comedy monster. A naughty cartoon character. An experiment gone wonderfully wrong. He explodes onstage with unfathomable energy, relentlessly pounding away at his audience with a wit as fast as his mouth, infectiously hilarious original songs, and his completely twisted world view. He's the psycho stalker ex-boyfriend of comedy, except that you want to see him again. And again. And again.
