Love and science - can a woman have both? Lorraine Liscio's provocative new play, Moving Bodies, directed by Myriam Cyr, centers around 18th century scientist Emilie, the Marquise du Chatelet, also remembered as the lover of Voltaire, and how she fought for love and science and why, as a woman, she was never allowed to have both. The cast features Lee Mikeska Gardner as Emilie du Chatelet and Saxon Palmer as Voltaire. Composer/pianist will perform live his original music as well as Bach, Vivaldi, and Mozart.
