News   John Glover Is in Love, in Philly's The Goat, Through June 20 John Glover, the Tony Award-winner who plays evil patriarch Lionel Luthor on TV's "Smallville," continues in the Philadelphia Theatre Company staging of Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?, to June 20.

Performances of the provocative play, about a man's love for a goat, began May 21. This is the Philly premiere of the comic-tragic play that invites the audience to ruminate about questions of fidelity, tolerance, the animal nature of human beings and more.

Directed by Tim Vasen, the production stars Glover (who snagged a Tony for Love! Valour! Compassion!) as a successful architect with a secret, Elizabeth Norment as his wife, and Bradford William Anderson (as son Billy) and Tom Teti (as Martin's best friend). The play won the 2002 Best Play Tony Award.

Designers are Todd Rosenthal (set); Ann G. Wrightson (lighting); and Murell Horton (costume).

Tickets are $30 to $45. For information, call (215) 569 9700 or visit www.phillytheatreco.com.
