(CourtestyOff Broadway Family Theater)
Off Broadway Family Theater has announced that Catherine Fowles and Robert Gilbert are now appearing in their adaptation of the children's classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The production opened on October 22 and plays at St. Luke's Theatre.

In this inventive and highly theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis's beloved tale, two actors play eight characters including children, beavers, fauns, wicked witches, and mythic lions. Highly theatrical, the show's storytelling relies on a 'magic circle' in the theater. When the actors are inside the circle, they show the story as it comes to life. When the actors step outside the circle, they tell you the story.

The show was adapted by le Clanché du Rand, and directed by Julia Beardsley O'Brien. Set and lighting design is by Josh Iacovelli with costumes and masks by Tom Long. Percussionist Shaun Gallant appears at every performance.
