Light Sensitive by Jim Geoghan
EXTENDED THROUGH JANUARY 29th
At The Theatre District at The Cast
Theatre District is proud to announce that “Light Sensitive” by veteran TV writer Jim Geoghan
(Three’s Company, Family Matters, Kate & Allie, Silver Spoons and Mama’s Family) will extend
its current production run through January 29, 2005. The show will run as scheduled through
December 18th, go dark for the Christmas and New Year's Holidays, and return to a regular
performance schedule on Friday, January 7, 2005
Light Sensitive is a simple story of love, belief and acceptance in Hell’s Kitchen. Thomas
Hanratty was once known as the “most feared white cab driver” in all of New York City.
After a freak accident which left him blind, he relies on his best friend Lou, for companionship
and support. When Lou takes a shot at making a life of his own, he finds a volunteer from the
Blind School to help take his place in Thomas’ life. Enter Edna, a first-time volunteer who faces
the challenge of befriending Tom, a proud man who doesn’t readily accept help. The result is a
battle of wills and wits that proves, once and for all, that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder
and reminds us that our eyes can sometimes get in the way of our seeing.
The show is directed by Artistic Director Macario Gaxiola. In the role of Thomas Hanratty,
veteran Theatre District Company member David Rousseve reprises the role that he has
portrayed in five prior productions of the show. The most recent prior production was a Los
Angeles Times Critic’s Pick for The Theatre District in December 2000. Veteran character
actor Jim O'Heir, plays Lou Demarco. Jim is a newcomer to The Theatre District, but not to
