A special reading of RADIANCE: The Passion of Marie Curie
A new play by Alan Alda
This major new work explores the deeply moving story of one of the most accomplished and revered scientists in history. In a visually enhanced production celebrating the opening night of the 2011 World Science Festival, the play soars with flights of intellectual adventure grounded in the tumultuous and all too human story of a brilliant woman’s determination to experience the passion she has both for knowledge and for love.
