This company consistently produces excellent plays. The venue is small and intimate. We have been going for 20 years and always want to come back again.

We are season ticket holders. We renewed our subscription for 2018-19. There are five shows and one is a Shakespeare play. Many of the plays are new and it’s equity theater.

saw Copenhagen last week and the performance was great. Theatre was very comfortable. Sits behind St. Stephen's Church on 10th Street and Ludlow. Very convenient parking directly across the street.

Our group of 4 saw the play Copenhagen which was well acted and very interesting. The Lantern Theater is small so all seats are good with no visual obstacles allowing for a very intimate theater going experience.

Intimate old theaters overflowing with superb acting & forgotten plays, found at the top of old crooked stairways, are another reason I love Philadelphia. Again reaffirmed by the current production of rarely performed Coriolanus at the historic Lantern, where with minimal sets & creative sound...More

Just say INFORMED CONSENT this month with friends and have watched a few other shows throughout the year. Solid performances and they pay all actor's equity salaries. On the 2nd floor, so be prepared to climb.

We found this play online. The tickets were well price - $37. Every seat is excellent. The quality of the play was OUTSTANDING. The script so interesting and the two actors in An Illiand were phenomenal. I will certainly go again.

I've been a season subscriber to this theater for the last couple of years. You get the best ticket prices that way and it forces you to see shows you may not have considered before. Most of the shows we've seen have been very good...More
