Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Mad Anthony Theatre Company’s Light Sensitive with a 4 Star Rating, in its first production as an LCT member.
Light Sensitive is described as a story of two lost souls who meet in Hell’s Kitchen and fall in love. Tom, a blind, reclusive and embittered former cab driver, and Edna, a volunteer reader who has erected numerous barriers to protect herself from injury, are brought together by Tom’s best friend, Lou, who is moving out of town.
Panelists called Light Sensitive full of “humor, drama, and a honest look at insecurities that anyone can relate to…what a great way for Mad Anthony to join the League of Cincinnati Theaters…quite a gem.” Henry Cepulch was highly praised for his direction, as was Mary Slocum’s scenic design. All three actors were commended for their performances. Daniel C. Britt, as Tom, was “the quintessential “New Yorker”…Playing a blind character doesn’t seem to be an easy feat, but he played the role with honesty and energy.” Bekka Eaton, as Edna, was “hilarious. Her comedic timing was impeccable.” Finally, Burt McCollum had his shining moment as Lou with a “magic” and “touching” performance.
