BWW Review: ADA AND THE ENGINE at Avant Bard Theatre
March 11, 2022

The compelling story of Ada Lovelace is back at Avant Bard Theater after being postponed due to the pandemic for nearly two years. Ada and the Engine by Lauren Gunderson runs approximately two hours and is set in the midst of the British Industrial Revolution surrounding Ada (Dina Soltan), a young scientist/mathematician, and Charles Babbage (Matthew Pauli), her intellectual soul mate. Both Ada and Charles play a fundamental role in the creation of an “Analytical Engine”, the first resemblance of what a computer would be. While it was Charles who invented this powerful, calculating machine, it was Ada who gave it life and a soul by programming it.
