ANTHONY LAWTON and THE MIRROR THEATRE COMPANY

The mission of the Mirror is: Spiritual Theatre for a Secular Audience. 
The company is committed to presenting drama about our spiritual life that will be of interest to all audiences, secular or religious.  Lawton wants his plays to be part of an ongoing dialogue with the audience -- a dialogue in which we discuss and consider that which is (or isn't!) Eternal in us.

C.S. Lewis' THE GREAT DIVORCE
C.S. Lewis' THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS

Now this is storytelling.  Anthony Lawton holds us rapt -- you can feel the intensity of the audience's attention -- with his masterful performance in The Great Divorce. . . . Each character. . . comes to life through Lawton's voice as he walks that fine line between the dramatic and the narrative.  He brings the old-fashioned, very literary vocabulary to life.

If excellent, passionate performance in the cause of Christian doctrine can get an actor to heaven's entry, Lawton has a place waiting for him on Lewis' bus.
     -- Philadelphia Inquirer (2005)


In the best tradition of one-man shows, Lawton . . . quickly makes us forget that he is only one man. . . . Lawton is mesmerizing -- fully deserving the standing ovation he received Tuesday night.
     -- Philadelphia Inquirer (1998)



    . . . . brilliantly conceived and performed by Anthony Lawton. . . . Lawton's one-man, one-act play of just 75 minutes constitutes as intelligent and provoking an evening as I’ve spent at the theater in a long time; it’s often devastatingly funny as well.
   -- Broad St. Review


The Devil and Billy Markham . . . is that rare and remarkable union of dazzling writing . . . and virtuosic acting (by Tony Lawton) that makes you feel the shiver of theater right down to your toes. . . . Lawton inhabits each of his characters . . . with such precision and truth that it is impossible to imagine another actor ever performing the piece.  His frequent shifts in character appear effortless; his focus is razor sharp . . . he simply owns it.
     -- Philadelphia City Paper


The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis . . . seems an unlikely work for stage adaptation, but actor-writer Tony Lawton’s energetic version succeeds. . . . Go for the showy pyrotechnics like Perrier’s increasingly slinky outfits, the actors’ daring choreography, even the witty PowerPoint presentation that illustrates Screwtape’s letters . . . and stay for the fascinating rumination on contemporary morals through Lawton’s all-too-human devil.

He explicates evil thoroughly, and it cuts across all faiths in its laserlike precision and simple delineation.

Lawton and Perrier light up St. Stephen’s Theater with truly interactive (and very athletic) performances, where multimedia displays inform the narrative and techno music or Led Zeppelin can lead to a dance number at any moment.
