A Man for All Seasons
#ManLTC
2021/22 Mainstage Season

A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS
Philadelphia Premiere
By Robert Bolt
Directed by Peter DeLaurier

LIVE ON STAGE
March 10 - April 9, 2022

When Henry VIII puts aside Queen Catherine, he fears opposition from Sir Thomas More, his own Lord Chancellor, even more than from the Pope. A man of principle and politics, More tries to thread a vanishingly small needle to uphold his principles and to keep his head. Robert Bolt's searing drama forces us to confront what we too might bear – or not – to keep clear our conscience.

NEWS & REVIEWS

"What a brave return to live theater this production is! Lantern Theater Company gives us old-time drama and powerful theater, full of big ideas and complex language, rather than a bit of fluff to amuse or console us. With a top-notch cast and clever direction by Peter DeLaurier, it's a heady three hours." –Toby Zinman, Phindie  more

"A new live beginning at Philly's Lantern Theater! Lantern's cast is impressive... Peter DeLaurier's sturdy, often gripping production has an old-fashioned feel." –Julia Klein, The Philadelphia Inquirer  more

"Riveting... Frank X gives a magnificent performance as Sir Thomas More. Wry, philosophical, weary yet optimistic, X's More is easily worth the price of admission. I could not take my eyes off his performance in a highly demanding role that requires a light touch with comedy but a commanding force with moral soliloquies." –Josh Herren, Broad Street Review  more
