Next up on stage at the Town Players of Newtown is Silent Sky, opening on July 19th.
Imagined from the life of Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores the universe of a gifted mind constrained by gender expectations, exploring a universe much more vast than the science of her day ever imagined. Gunderson is considered one of the rising stars in the galaxy of American theater. Directed by Ruth Anne Baumgartner.The play has been called “a pleasant, thought-provoking evening,” a “lively, funny, accessible play that’s alive with interesting ideas,” “a luminously beautiful play,” “an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale…Heavenly.”
