The Kingfisher— May 22, 2013 by Jodi Thompson for Bucks County Playbook
I have a particular affinity for Langhorne Players. Not only have I rarely been disappointed with time spent in their theater, but their dedication to the creative community of Bucks County speaks to my sensibilities. He (Sheldon Zeff, Director) wants theater goers most of all to know “it’s going to be a fun night at the theater. But I want them to talk about it."
33 Variations — August 18, 2013 by Jodi Thompson for Bucks County Playbook
This, this, THIS is why I’m grateful for Langhorne Players… Go see 33 VARIATIONS. There is really no reason every seat at each performance shouldn’t be filled. This is a fugue to experience. As Brandt says: “There is beauty in the minutiae.”
33 Variations — August 24, 2013 by Jean Brenner for Stage Magazine
When I see a play so interestingly written, well-acted and beautifully-directed as this one, I want to shout from the rooftop, “Go to see 33 VARIATIONS at Langhorne Players before the run ends!"
THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE — by Wren Workman for Stage Magazine
From the moment you enter the theater proper and see the stage you know that the Langhorne Players’ production of BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE is going to be something special.THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE is quite beautifully crafted both in character of the actors as well as the character of the staging itself. No glance went unseen, no heart left uncrushed under the weight of the truth. If you can make the time to go see this wondrous production, make the time…
WILDEST DREAMS — by Wren Workman for Stage Magazine
WILDEST DREAMS at Langhorne Players is a beautiful little stroll through the psychology of four role-playing friends and the chaos an extra person brings to their group. The show starts off funny before making quick and sudden darker and darker emotional twists and turns. Director Jack Bathke’s vision of WILDEST DREAMS is fantastic and well executed. For anyone who has ever wanted to escape from reality, ever tried their hands at RPG whether it be Final Fantasy or Dungeons & Dragons, or ever wanted to just watch a small cast fade away into characters becoming characters, then WILDEST DREAMS is the perfect choice. Don’t roll the dice on this show — see it while you can.
Good People — July 17, 2015 by Jodi Thompson for Bucks County Playbook
Langhorne Players third offering of the season is David Lindsay-Abaire’s GOOD PEOPLE. The work had a short run on Broadway and garnered two Tony awards. Not many will know the story. That’s a good thing. To miss this production would be a bad thing.
Breaking the Code — October 8, 2015 by Jodi Thompson for Bucks County Playbook
If you’ve already seen the film The Imitation Game, and believe you don’t need to see this production, you would miss a riveting performance by Nigel Rogers. And you would be wrong.Once again, Langhorne Players brushes aside any common misconceptions of “community theater” and provides a production worthy of respect. This is no easy, linear play. The choices are as rife with peril as those faced by the main character. Director Jack Bathke gives it its due. You can’t miss BREAKING THE CODE. Rogers’ tour-de-force performance is invigorating, empowering. BREAKING THE CODE will leave you plenty to ponder.
