Curie Me Away! - The Musical Life Story of Madame Marie Curie
September 15 - 16, 2018
Greetings MN educators! You may recall this event previously scheduled to coincide with the infamous unforeseen April 14 blizzard. Though the show was nearly sold out in advance, we were forced to cancel due to extreme weather. But good news! The Bryant Lake Bowl has rescheduled for TWO performances, September 15 and 16!
Curie Me Away! weaves core chemistry concepts into compelling lyrical metaphor to tell the extraordinary life story of Madame Marie Curie, a pioneer in the field of Physical Chemistry. Written in collaboration with a chemistry professor, this original musical packs a scientific punch while reaching across disciplines to offer inspiration and insight to students of history, womens studies and social studies. Curie Me Away! has performed for the National Atomic Testing Museum (part of the Smithsonian Institution) and won a "Best of Fest" award at the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival.
From growing up in Russian occupied Poland, where the higher education of women was a punishable crime, to rocking the world as the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, "Curie Me Away!" is the radical story of a persistent woman who changed our understanding of the universe.
There's a whole summer between now and then, but we hope you'll put this weekend on your calendar! Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16 at the Bryant Lake Bowl. www.matheatre.com
