from the novel by Henry Fielding

Women can’t keep their hands off Tom Jones, a man of unknown parentage but undeniable charm. Tom’s heart belongs to the virtuous Sophia Western, but when he finds himself the center of female attention and all manner of romantic complication, everything seems to stand between the two. Former Producing Director Jon Jory returns with his rollicking adaptation of Henry Fielding’s classic comic tale of scandal, sword fighting and the bewildering power of love.

What the Critics are saying about Tom Jones

“When you add exquisite Marcia Dixcy Jory costumes to Tom Burch’s can’t-believe-that’s-not-real-wood floor scenic design, Matthew Richard’s mood-and-moment lighting, Joe Cerqua’s period-evocative music, Drew Fracher’s thrilling fight direction you have a Tom Jones for today or any other. Jory’s marvelous production certainly adds luster to ATL’s golden year.” – Evans Donnell, ArtsNash Full Review 

“On stage, “Tom Jones” is a frothy, funny romp through the backyards and bedchambers of the English countryside and London’s snobby salons.” – Erin Keane, WFPL Full Review

“Jory appears to have created a strong cohesion among all of the cast members that helps them carry out this fast-paced farce.” – Elizabeth Kramer, Courier-Journal

“this witty, swashbuckling, utterly charming piece of work is a great bit of fun for Actors’ golden anniversary.”- Todd Ziegler, Full Review
