Theatre at LLT
Lakeside Little Theatre’s Ajijic Readers Theatre (ART) presents “Light Sensitive,” written by Jim Geoghan and directed by Dave McIntosh, Friday to Sunday, July 16-18. All performances are at 4 p.m. on The Angel Terrace.
Funny, honest, poignant, and pertinent; this bittersweet comedy follows two lost souls who meet in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Tom is a blind, bitter former cabbie who meets Edna, a disabled woman who has isolated herself, and is hired to take care of Tom by Tom’s only friend, Lou. Out of the darkness of what brings them together, come three characters who show us there is light at the end of every tunnel.
“Geoghan brings his characters to life and the audience to its feet cheering,” wrote one critic for The Los Angeles Times.
Tickets, 150 pesos, are available at lakesidelittletheatre.com; at LLT’s box office on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to noon; or one hour before show time on performance days.
