A reclusive librarian -- the sole character -- finds a book that is 123 years overdue. When he opens it and finds a ticket for a Chinese laundry in London, his curiosity compels him to redeem the ticket leading him to another clue that sends him around the world on a global quest to track down the book's original borrower in Underneath the Lintel. Played by Paul Morella, the Librarian uncovers a mystery that seems to transcend the ages, but are the results due to investigation or madness? Underneath the Lintel is a moving journey of self-discovery where faith and facts intersect. Learn More

The setup - "girl vows never to fall in love then falls in love" presents the problem of making us believe. For instance Benedick's switch in Much Ado risks our perceiving him as a man of trivial conviction. What I loved about the production was the way Natalia Miranda-Guzman acts the transition of a woman determined to eschew love, but who then tumbles headlong into it. Of course Moreto's classic script provides the means, but Miranda-Guzman is wonderful, and the entire cast is outstanding. Well acted, well sung, well played. The only obstacle for me, with my minimal Spanish, was the problem they were having with the surtitles - sometimes out of sync and twice the operator had to go back and forth to get back on track. But the production is very good, especially for those with good Spanish.
