Silent Sky

 By Lauren Gunderson

May 3 - 12, 2024

Based on the true story of early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory, Silent Sky is a captivating story about one woman’s passion for the stars. Astonishing discoveries await Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. But the year is 1900 and this brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle for recognition among her male peers. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, Silent Sky tenderly reminds us of what makes life under the vast sky so beautiful and timeless.

  • Due to the intimacy of 2nd Stage and the proximity of the stage to the door and seating area, there will be NO LATE SEATING. Please plan ahead as the exterior doors are locked promptly at 8:00 pm. Refunds not available due to late arrival.
  • 2nd Stage is wheelchair accessible via our elevator, however, there is no space for wheelchair parking to watch the show. Patrons must be willing to transfer to a seat (steps involved) if they would like to attend a 2nd Stage production.
