Regional Premiere! An astonishing true story! Early 1900’s… Henrietta Leavitt, a meticulous mathematician, is hired by the Harvard Observatory to be a human calculator. Struggling with increasing hearing loss, she calculates the distance between sound waves which leads her to a groundbreaking discovery…she can deduce the distance between planets and stars using her formula! Her accomplishment was even more amazing since – as a woman – she was never allowed to look into the skies through Harvard’s telescope. An historical event filled with humor, hope and the indomitable human spirit! By Lauren Gunderson. A new theatrical treat!
