GH Writer Scott C. Sickles' Lightning From Heaven image

(Gerry Goodstein)

Epic romance.

Next month, New York's WorkShop Theater Company will be launching the premiere production of "GH" writer Scott C. Sickles' play, "Lightning From Heaven." The play will run for a limited engagement on the Main Stage of the WorkShop Theater, located at 312 West 36th Street, 4th Floor.

Sickles told, "The play is an epic, and at times tragic, romance about a bright, passionate couple facing great adversity, in this case the Soviet government. It celebrates creativity and the enduring nature of love. Even if someone has never seen David Lean's film of Doctor Zhivago or read Pasternak's novel, people can identify with these characters and this story because at some point or another we've all been silenced, we've all had to speak up, and in one way or another we've all experienced the joy and cost of loving someone." He added that, "I think it will leave soap fans moved, inspired, and wanting to know what happens next. Speaking as a soap fan, I love that."

The play will open on Valentine's Day, Thursday February 14 and run until Saturday March 9. It will be performed according to the following schedule until Saturday March 9: Thursdays at 7:00 PM, Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 8:00 PM, Sundays at 3:00 PM with an additional performance on Monday March 4 at 7:00 PM.

Tickets are available at a cost of $15–18. Please visit The WorkShop Theater for your tickets or more information.

You can catch GH star Constance Towers On 1600 Penn.
