On Being Human

"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being."
~ Oscar Wilde

This was our primary goal in producing Marie Curie: Rogue Scientist, the new one-woman play touring Spring 2012.

We did not want our audiences to simply be told about Marie's life — though that in itself would be interesting enough to experience. The obstacles she faced, and what she achieved in spite of them, would make the best of us feel unaccomplished.

Regardless, what we wanted, and what we hope we have achieved, was for a two-hour glimpse inside the memories and soul of another person. A humorous, passionate, highly intelligent, deeply troubled woman who knew her purpose in life, and refused to let anyone keep her from attaining her life's goals.

Marie changed the world for the better, just like she always wanted. She was "something." She mattered in a world and profession that told her she never would.

Disturbing Theatre

"...There is another kind of theatre... Without your being aware of it, the director transports you from the world of the audience to that of the stage, where you become a participant in the life being depicted in the play. Something has happened to you...

When the curtain goes up you immediately say... 'I believe everything, everything, everything... There is my mother, I recognize her...'

The play is over, you are disturbed...  

The elements contributing to your disturbed state of mind and emotions in this case are such that you are made to concentrate and think deeply. After the performance you feel no urge to go to a restaurant. You would like to sit around some happy family table... You feel the need for an intimate talk about life's problems, philosophical outlooks and social questions....

You feel that those people whom you saw on stage last night have become near and dear to you. You want to share their sorrows and their joys. In them you see a part of your own soul."
~ Stanislavski

Thus, is Marie Curie: Rogue Scientist, a new one-woman play.

Kristie's Foundation: Wonderful Charity

Support this wonderful charity bringing joy to terminally ill children, and their families, during the final days of their brave fights...

To donate online, click here.

10% of every ticket purchased for the Chino weekend (3/30 - 4/1)
of the "Marie Curie: Rogue Scientist" tour will go to Kristie's.

If that's what you want...

When you give them the real thing, the audience will leave talking not so much about you but about their lives... They will run out and call their sister who they haven't talked to in ten years or hurry home to hug their daughter, they will move out of a terrible situation or confront their boss―they will be altered in some way―and they come to you backstage and say "thank you!"

~ Silverberg

If that's the kind of theatre you are interested in...

The tour continues March 30 - April 1, in Chino's 7th Street Theatre.

Sandy, thank you for your trust, selflessness, and encouragement. Congratulations on the renaming. You deserve to have your name on the building!

Chris, thank for you for all the hours you put in getting our tech on point. We couldn't have done it without you!
