JEFF RECOMMENDED

PRAISE FOR
LIGHTHOUSEKEEPING

"... a beautiful call for unabashed, wide-eyed optimism in the face of darkness."

- Neal Ryan Shaw
New City


"The acting is sensational ... young Caroline Phillips is terrific, [Tien Doman] is terrific ... they are simply cradled by the set and the sound design."

- Kelly Kleiman
WBEZ's Dueling Critics


"... an imaginative adaptation by Georgette Kelly and ambitious, soulful direction by Jessica Hutchinson ... incredibly thoughtful use of space to signify vast swaths of space and time, overlapping stories, and a lighthouse beacon at its center."

- Monica Westin
Flavorpill Chicago


"Lighthousekeeping shines as a poetic, touching and clever piece of theatre. Doman and Butts are stunning ... a masterfully executed adaptation."

- Keith Ecker
Chicago Theatre Beat


Combine the memory of your most joyous kiss hello with that of your longest kiss goodbye. Gorgeous. Go.
