Lantern Theater is celebrated for its Shakespeare productions, and with The Tempest, it reaches the pinnacle. Probably Shakespeare’s last play, and possibly his greatest, it’s difficult to categorize, mixing humor, grandeur, spectacle, magic and profound humanity. Director Charles McMahon’s cast stars a who’s who of Philly favorites, such as Peter DeLaurier, Bi Jean Ngo, Frank X and J Hernandez.
