For more than 20 years, Lantern Theater Company has been making theater in the charmingly atmospheric, intimate space adjoining St. Stephen’s Church. Plays—rather than musicals—dominate here, with a mix of contemporary works and classic ones that are notable for their intellectual rigor (think: playwrights like Shaw, Chekhov, Ibsen and Stoppard). Works by Shakespeare are particularly well done under the steady hand of artistic director Charles McMahon.
