This week we begin DOUBT previews and we will be doing something special. In honor of the Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, the Lantern will be holding a food drive at all performances this Thursday - Sunday. All proceeds will go to Philabundance. There are a limited number of tickets still available so please consider joining us for a terrific production, and bring a non-perishable food item with you to help serve our community!
Fun Fact: DOUBT playwright John Patrick Shanley grew up in the Bronx and attended Catholic schools growing up, but his academic career had a rocky start. According to his program bio from the Broadway production, he was "thrown out of St. Helena’s kindergarten, banned from St. Anthony’s hot lunch program and expelled from Cardinal Spellman High School."
