La Marquise du Châtelet was a mathematician, a physicist and the toast of the Enlightenment. So why then is the Marquise not better known? Perhaps Voltaire put it best when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now, Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, the brilliant play from Lauren Gunderson (Leap), resurrects this fascinating personality. Brought back from the dead, Emilie is determined to answer the questions that haunted her dying moments on earth: "Was I right?" and "Was I loved?" As she travels back in time to revisit key moments in her scientific and emotional journeys, the full extent of her remarkably prescient legacy is revealed in this smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius.

All six of us enjoyed the superb performance of Cambridge Central Theater from the second row (yes our tickets were that great!). We were taken on heart breaking journey. Also we were very lucky to meet the special guest after the performance- Ela Weissberger was 11 years old when she participated in original Brundibar production at the nazi concentration camp in Terezin at 1943. She is also one of very few survivors. Her story is the one that is treasured and passed on to generation. Thank you Goldstar for landing news of this wonderful event in my email inbox :-)
