FINDING MADAME CURIE To Open CreateTheater's NEW WORKS FESTIVAL

In Kurkowski's new musical, nothing can stop Marie Curie in her quest for scientific discovery-not gender bias, ethnic discrimination, nor personal tragedy.

FINDING MADAME CURIE To Open CreateTheater's NEW WORKS FESTIVAL

CreateTheater will be presenting 6 performances of Finding Madame Curie, a new musical by David Kurkowski, April 14-23 at Theatre Row's Theater Four, 410 W. 42nd St., NY, NY. Finding Madame Curie will be directed by Staś Kmieć (Fiddler on the Roof) and features Kerry Conte as Madame Curie. Kristin DeGroot, David Edwards, Michael J. Farina, David B. Friedman, Alex Goshert, Sophie Jones, James Schultz, Tyler Shore, and Kyle Yampiro round out the rest of the cast.

In Kurkowski's new musical, nothing can stop Marie Curie in her quest for scientific discovery-not gender bias, ethnic discrimination, nor personal tragedy. After winning two Nobel Prizes, she creates mobile X-ray units that save countless lives of French soldiers - and at the warfront, she makes an unexpected discovery of her own. With twenty-four memorable songs written in traditional musical theatre style, Finding Madame Curie is a perfect family show that will warm everyone's heart.

Director Staś Kmieć says, "I believe audiences will have a newfound respect for Maria Sklodowska Curie's amazing journey and magnificent achievements. Audiences of all ages will be captivated, but I especially hope parents will bring school-age children to learn about Madame Curie."

Music direction by Larry Daggett, set design by Tyler R. Harold, lighting design by Greg Solomon, costume design by Debbi Hobson, stage management by Matthew Palmer, casting by Jamibeth Margolis, orchestrations by Dean Schneider and Daniel Lincoln.

Finding Madame Curie runs for approximately 90 minutes, and includes one 15-minute intermission.
