Event details

The true story of 19th Century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas typically were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. This show dramatizes the life of Leavitt from the beginning of her time at Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, when she wasn’t allowed to touch a telescope. Directed by Megan Westhoff. 

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27-29 and 2 p.m. Feb. 29-March 1.

PSU students, faculty, and staff are entitled to free tickets with a valid PSU ID.
