This is a must see production! Acting is superb and I loved the storyline. Excellent!

HOWEVER....be careful with seating. I've never had a bad seat through Goldstar until now. I literally sat behind a post and my guest also had an encumbered...continued

My twelve year old daughter and her buddy really enjoyed this, especially the scenes with the main character and her women colleagues. Highly recommended for middle school aged girls!

This was an inspiring performance. The lead, as Henrietta Swan Leavitt absolutely glowed.

But was so little made of the hearing impairments of both Anne Jump Cannon and Henrietta? The two women are a potential source of pride and role models...continued

Good not great. The actors and sets are terrific. The story felt like a PBS history dramatization meets after school special.

Fantastic acting all around, great storyline. It’s only a 4 star because old theaters can be nice however there isn’t enough ‘rise’ between the rows, therefore me seeing the stage was at the whim of a taller man in front of me that wouldn’t stop...continued

Loved this play and this historic venue!

Silent Sky shines light on a giant of early 20th century astronomy, Henrietta Leavitt and two of her female colleagues in astronomy, all of whom deserve the attention.

The play is engaging and funny and...continued

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the history. The importance of what Henrietta Leavitt did can't be washed away because men tried to take advantage of her findings.

That being said, some things were a bit forced, like the addition of dancing...continued
