Theater Review: “Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”

Plays Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm; Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm

Theater Review: "Silent Sky"

"Silent Sky,” about three women who dared not call themselves astronomers but who advanced the science immeasurably at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

Young playwright Lauren Gunderson seems to be making a career of writing plays about little-known women scientists. San Diego playgoers saw her play about mathematician/physicist the Marquise du Châtelet last year.
