The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries. When she begins to work at the Harvard Observatory, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned male astronomer. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both scientific and social progress, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the Heavens and Earth. Taken from the website

From the mind of hit television screenwriter Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us, Switched at Birth) comes The Cake, a play of equal sentimentality and trouble. Main character Della, played by That ’70s Show‘s Debra Jo Rupp, has a knack for cakes, not judgment calls — those usually get sent to her husband. When the girl she helped raise returns to North Carolina with a different fiancee than expected, Della has to decide whether the cake will include two brides atop or not. Taken from the website

GREAT SHOW
Great show! Debra Jo Rupp is an American treasure. Attended this show last week with my wife and brother and his wife. I will admit that it gave a lot to talk about on the ride home. Would have given it five stars, but I found two short scenes to be a bit sleezy. These, I felt were scenes that were unnecessary to the overall theme and they would not have had an impact if they had been omitted. Otherwise .... fantastic show - highly recommend it.
