Richard Feynman was a true iconoclast, a brilliant theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner who played the bongos and was beloved by his students. A rock star among his fellow scientists, he was also enormously popular with non-scientists for his work presenting scientific topics to the general public in an engaging and understandable way. He was perhaps most well-known for his hilarious collections of anecdotes from his life and work, including Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! This up-close and personal portrait, performed by Jeff Garrett, relives a day in the life of Mr. Feynman, presenting scenes from both his professional life (working on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger inquiry) to his personal life (the death of his wife and his own fight with cancer). This touching and laugh-out-loud biographical play brings forth the humor, warmth and personality that made Richard Feynman a beloved figure of 20th-century science. Learn More

We enjoyed the show and enjoyed learning about Julia Morgan. We never realized that she completed so many projects!
We thought that the script was very good, but we were always aware that the actors were acting. With the exception of the actor who played Julia, we never felt as though they became the characters they were playing.
Quotes & Highlights
- “A beautiful and intelligently designed creation ... like her buildings, it is pleasing to the senses, with fine attention to detail and outstanding craftsmanship.” --<em>Sacramento Bee</em>
Becoming Julia Morgan is written by local writer Belinda Taylor and directed by Aurora Theater founder Barbara Oliver, starring award-winning Janis Stevens in the title role. The play shines a light on Morgan's bravery, fears, eccentricities, generosity and dedication to craftsmanship. Her success and the grace with which she lived her life serve to inspire us today, especially women and girls. The proof of her "confounding ability to conjure up beauty" is that we yearn to experience her buildings, be inside them, absorb the exciting visual elements and the harmony that are hallmarks of her artistry.
