Theatre Horizon presents LOBBY HERO (Feb. 18th – Mar 13th)

Lobby Hero
FEB 18-MAR 13, 2016
by Kenneth Lonergan
Directed by Matthew Decker

“…a masterpiece. The best drama, the best comedy and the best romance of the year, all rolled into one.”
—TIME OUT NEW YORK
Jeff, a hapless young security guard working at a Manhattan high-rise, is just trying to get his life together after being thrown out of the navy. When he finds himself drawn into a local police investigation, Jeff must decide between loyalty to William, his supervisor, or disclosing what he knows to Dawn, a rookie cop involved in the case. This tangled morality play—dealing with the damage caused by impure motives, police corruption and racial profiling—is written by Oscar-nominated writer Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me, Gangs of New York).

Tickets go on sale on January 7, 2016.

Theatre Horizon will offer free tickets to Norristown residents for its 2015/16 season. Tickets can be reserved by calling the Box Office at 610-283-2230 x1. All tickets are subject to availability.

Did you know our lobby is BYOB? Enjoy your favorite bottle of wine or beer in our inviting lobby and converse with fellow audience members. We will provide storage for your beverages while you enjoy the show.
