Around the Region November 1, 2014 at 9:37 am 0 comments

THE COLUMNIST is a dark little romp through the life of the very real Joseph Alsop. It provides a great bookend to wrap up Langhorne’s good season of philosophically gray shows. While not a family friendly show by any stretch due to themes and language, it is otherwise a must […]

“Civilized” Discussion at Langhorne Players: GOD OF CARNAGE

Around the Region April 22, 2013 at 3:35 pm 0 comments

A warm glow emanates from the fireplace. The warm feeling radiates through the entire room of richly colored furniture, wood floors and accents, and classic 1920s era tunes.
