But that did not stop Leavitt from making discoveries that lead to establishing a measurement standard for astronomers all over the world. She left behind the familiar world of her father's pulpit in Wisconsin, ventured off to Harvard, and uncovered a way to use the brightness of stars to determine their distance from one another.

BWW Review: Springhouse Theatre's THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 14, 2015

How wonderful is it that a song can usher in all sorts of memories - perhaps of your first kiss, driving in a car along a dusty country road, or of people once-loved, still-loved, who are no longer a part of your life - to flood your mind, fill your heart and to transport you, as if by magic, to some earlier time? I love that feeling, which we in the theater are subject to far more often than regular folk, thanks to the music that underscores our dramatic lives and which allows everyone onstage, offstage, backstage - in whatever stage of life - to indulge in the play of 'make believe.'

The tales begin to spin as plans for a day of fun at the local county fair are marred by an eviction notice on Rooster's door. Country life seems anything but simple in Profiles Theatre's ambitious production of Jez Butterworth's Tony winning play, Jerusalem. (more...)
