2009/10 Season

Scapin
Philadelphia Premiere
By Bill Irwin and Mark O'Donnell
Adapted from Jean Baptiste Molière
Directed by Aaron Cromie
December 3, 2009 - January 10, 2010

Adapted by Bill Irwin (The Happiness Lecture) and Mark O'Donnell, this hilarious re-imagining of the Molière classic puts famous servant Scapin at the center of an inventive interaction between actors and puppets in a production stuffed with chase scenes, revenge plots, slapstick and spoofery, live music, and lots of theater magic for the entire family. Scapin is directed by Aaron Cromie, known as a performer, director, and puppeteer from projects such as The Foocy, The Comedy of Errors, Travels with My Aunt, and The Fantasticks.

"Irresistible!"  –Philadelphia Inquirer  [More]

"The cast's verbal and physical dexterity never ceases to amaze."  –Philadelphia City Paper  [More]

"If you're looking for a holiday outing for the extended family, forget about that budget-breaking excursion to a Broadway musical. Instead get tickets to Scapin and roll in the aisles with laughter."  –Broad Street Review  [More]

"The humor is quick-witted and the laughs are continuous and varied: slapstick, political, double entendre, silly, and insightful. This is theater at its best."  –Philly2Philly.com  [More]

"Start the New Year off right with one of Philadelphia's best theaters."  –Uwishunu  [More]

"What a fun way to end the holiday season."  –Phillyist  [More]

"The Lantern's production provides a welcome diversion from reality."  –Philadelphia Weekly

"Absolutely hysterical and undeniably amazing!"  –Philly Theatre Talk
