Playwrights Horizons begins accepting entries February 6 for the LIVEforFIVE online lottery for $5 tickets to their world-premiere production of The Light Years. The new play, written by Hannah Bos and Paul Thureen, begins performances February 17, with opening night set for March 13. The Light Years is directed and developed by Oliver Butler and made by the Debate Society. The LIVEforFIVE lottery for The Light Years will be for tickets to the first preview on February 17.

The production will star Ken Barnett (Plenty), Aya Cash (You're the Worst), Brian Lee Huynh (War Horse), Erik Lochtefeld (Small Mouth Sounds), Rocco Sisto (Seminar), and Graydon Peter Yosowitz (You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown).

The play is described as follows: "Behold the Spectatorium: an audacious, visionary 12,000-seat theater designed for the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 by Steele MacKaye (Sisto), the now forgotten theatrical impresario around whom this haunted, 40-year love story spins."

The Light Years will feature scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by three-time Tony Award nominee Michael Krass, lighting design by Obie Award winner Russell H. Champa, sound design by Lee Kinney, and original music by Daniel Kluger.
