Do you miss musical theatre? If so, come to a virtual presentation of a new musical, Madame Curie. October 5 at 7pm EDT. This show follows Marie from the time she is 10 in occupied Warsaw to her years in Paris, where she conducts her dazzling research, and ends on the WWI battlefront, making the most surprising discovery of all. See how she battles xenophobia, gender bias, and personal tragedy to become one of the greatest scientists of all time.
This production was prerecorded during quarantine by 11 talented actors (Broadway, national tours, Philadelphia regional theater, Juilliard) and has been carefully edited for high quality music and video. The songs are singable and fully orchestrated in the Rodgers and Hammerstein style.
Parents can feel comfortable watching with their children, and Marie’s story may even inspire their interest in science.
