In this acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize-winning play that inspired the 2005 film of the same name, a groundbreaking mathematical proof turns up in the attic of a famous genius who has just died after a long struggle with mental illness. Catherine, the daughter of the late genius, and Hal, one of his former students, must now uncover the proof's history. The mathematical mystery and budding romance conspire to cause Catherine to question both her own genius and her sanity in David Auburn's drama that took home the Tony Award for Best Play in 2001.

Overall the play was very good. The concept was interesting on a leading composer and a look at how a disease can affect a person's life and those around them. The play keeps your attention all the way to the end. The brief nudity scene was unnecessary and added nothing to the story.
The show contains brief nudity.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Little Theatre of AlexandriaFounded in 1934, The Little Theatre of Alexandria began as a small play-reading group in Old Town Alexandria under the Presidency of Miss Mary Lindsey. Full productions ensued, and in 1939 the group bought a rickety former blacksmith's shop located in Ramsey Alley, between Lee and Fairfax streets, for rehearsal space and construction of sets and costumes. Since 1934, the theatre has mounted over 300 productions.
Today, LTA is the oldest award-winning theater in the Washington metro area and one of only a few community theaters in the country with its own building and an ambitious 7-show season. Proud of their rich heritage, LTA is excited about its future. They may be a little theater, but their expectations are gigantic.
