Praise for Lighthousekeeping:

“… a beautiful call for unabashed, wide-eyed optimism in the face of darkness.”
– Neal Ryan Shaw, New City
“… an imaginative adaptation by Georgette Kelly … a lighthouse beacon at its center.”
– Monica Westin, Flavorpill Chicago


“Lighthousekeeping shines as a poetic, touching and clever piece of theatre … 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.
