Silent Sky

Presented by Festival Playhouse of Kalamazoo College at Kalamazoo College - Nelda K. Balch Playhouse, Kalamazoo MI

Feb 27 2020
Silent Sky

Silent Sky tells the story of one of the first female astronomers, Henrietta Leavitt, whose ground breaking discoveries were overlooked and discredited by her male colleagues.

Henrietta Leavitt, a gifted astronomer, is relegated to the role of "computer" while her male colleagues take credit for her celestial discoveries. Our Winter production, Silent Sky, pays homage to Henrietta Leavitt's mind, discoveries and struggle to be recognized.
