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.” —Sacramento Bee

Description

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.
