★★★★ Critic’s Pick
“A theatrical cabinet of wonders! A wistful, cockeyed play that celebrates American dreamers.”
David Cote, Time Out New York
“Let there be light. A hymn to the glories and perils of creative minds. Fabulous.”
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Behold The Spectatorium: an audacious, visionary 12,000-seat theater designed for the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 by Steele MacKaye, the now-forgotten theatrical impresario around whom this haunted, 40-year love story spins. From the minds of celebrated play-making company The Debate Society, THE LIGHT YEARS is an epic, intimate tale of two families struggling to meet their future, and a spectacular tribute to man’s indomitable spirit of invention.
