Mad Anthonyâ€™s â€œLight Sensitiveâ€ Earns 4 Star LCT Rating
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Mad Anthony Theatre Companyâ€™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 Hellâ€™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 Tomâ€™s best friend, Lou, who is moving out of town.
Panelists called Light Sensitive full of â€œhumor, drama, and a honest look at insecurities that anyone can relate toâ€¦what a great way for Mad Anthony to join the League of Cincinnati Theatersâ€¦quite a gem.â€ Henry Cepulch was highly praised for his direction, as was Mary Slocumâ€™s scenic design. All three actors were commended for their performances. Daniel C. Britt, as Tom, was â€œthe quintessential “New Yorker”â€¦Playing a blind character doesn’t seem to be an easy feat, but he played the role with honesty and energy.â€ Bekka Eaton, as Edna, was â€œhilarious. Her comedic timing was impeccable.â€ Finally, Burt McCollum had his shining moment as Lou with a â€œmagicâ€ and â€œtouchingâ€ performance.
