The Big Deal: WaterTower Theatre Presents Silent Sky

by Gila Espinoza 4 Jan 2017 8:30 AM



WaterTower Theatre will present the regional premiere of a new play by Lauren Gunderson. Gunderson was named the most produced living playwright in America by American Theatre Magazine in 2016.  “Silent Sky” blends humor and romance in a riveting exploration of the life and career of American astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt (1868-1921). Leavitt fearlessly asserted herself in the male-driven, turn-of-the-century world of science and academia. “Silent Sky” is a true story of discovery about Leavitt and other real women working at the dawn of modern astronomy as they explored the magic of the universe.  The play will run January 20 through February 12 at the Addison Theatre Centre. Win this Big Deal and receive a pair of tickets good for the Friday, January 27 performance.

Be sure you take the time now to explore our other Big Deal this week – tickets to see “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
