SILENT SKY
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Shawn Fuller
March 29-April 14, 2019

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. 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 were dismissed until men claimed credit for them.

Anat Cohen Tentet @ Mount Baker Theatre
May 18 @ 7:30 pm

With her acclaimed “Tentet” ensemble, woodwind virtuoso Anat Cohen brings audiences an evocative and exciting experience brimming with her infectious charisma. As JazzTimes says, “With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing—musically—with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus.” The Tentet’s repertoire draws on Anat’s diverse musical loves, and the new album, Happy Song, is a synergistic collaboration between Anat and co-producer/co-arranger Oded Lev-Ari. Delight in this eclectic and masterful performance.
