The BoomRS are going to the Lantern Theater Company (923 Ludlow Street) to see Under the Lintel (An Impressive Presentation of Lovely Evidences).

About the show:
A mystery begins with the return of an overdue book to the Hoofddorp Public Library – 113 years too late! A librarian's quest to solve the mystery takes him across the globe and brings him face to face with a solitary figure from Jewish antiquity, a man whose life is a triumphant example of human resilience and fortitude. In this new production of the Lantern's 2003 gem, Peter DeLaurier recreates his Barrymore Award-winning role of The Librarian which The Philadelphia Inquirer called a "masterly performance."
