News & Reviews

"The Lantern's impressively staged production of Anna Ziegler's The Last Match is funny, heartbreaking, and surprisingly relatable for even the least athletic among us." –Broad Street Review  more

"The Last Match is gripping theatre... The creative team has done splendid work. The set by Lance Kniskern is fresh and grand. M. Craig Getting directed his actors to go for broke and the result is galvanizing." –PhillyGayCalendar

"Several laugh-out-loud moments... The Last Match shows us that life is about more than winning or losing... it's also about how you get to the game, and who and what drives you to the top." –Philly Life & Culture
