TV stars drawn to Ravetch’s ‘Beacon’

Play chronicles the life of a stubborn lighthouse keeper

HOLLYWOOD — Brooke Shields, Robert Forster, “Dawson’s Creek” star Kerr Smith and Irene Roseen of “Gideon’s Crossing” will perform a staged reading of Joshua Ravetch’s new play, “Beacon,” July 11 at the Egyptian Arena Theater.

“Beacon” chronicles the life of a lighthouse keeper who refuses to budge after the Coast Guard deems his tower compromised after a major squall.

Ravetch, VP production services at New Line Cinema, has previously sold specs to Universal and Miramax (“Off Sides”), and Jonathan Lynn is attached to direct Ravetch’s “George’s Diner” for Mike Lobell Prods.

A previous Ravetch play, “Girders,” is slated for a Broadway run later this year at the Helen Hayes Theater with Fred Zollo (“Quiz Show”) producing.

Forster now stars in “Like Mike.” Shields was most recently seen on Broadway in “Cabaret” and the ABC miniseries “Widows.” Smith’s feature credits include “Final Destination.”

The William Morris Agency, which reps Ravetch, Shields and Smith, arranged the reading.
