ABOUT THE SHOW

Look to the stars with this luminously beautiful play that lights your heart! Astronomer Henrietta Leavitt trades the comforts of her rural home for a job at the Harvard Observatory in Massachusetts. Her ambition leaves both her family and her new colleagues (women known simply as “computers”) perplexed. But with a single discovery, their views of themselves, each other, and the universe itself will be upended for all time. A story still familiar today, and familiar to the women "computers" at NASA in the 50' & 60's, as celebrated recently in the movie Hidden Figures.
