Still More Audience Response to SILENT SKY

April 25, 2018

Audiences Are Loving LNT's Silent Sky


Throughout the show at each performance, LNT's house manager Thomas and I hear the audience laugh, snicker, gasp, groan at the injustices they hear in certain lines, and, at the end of the play, we hear them sniffling.
The sniffling comes just before  - at every show - they rise to their feet in a prolonged standing ovation.

They've been entertained, moved, informed, and thoroughly enchanted by Lauren Gunderson's incredible play.
And  the audience - our show's final scene partner - want to have Their say - and show their appreciation to Ms. Gunderson and LNT's ensemble for giving voice to this remarkable story of the women computers at Harvard, 1900-1920.

For me, Silent Sky is Everything theater should be.

What follows is still more response - emailed to us, said to us after shows, published, or posted on facebook - from those seeing the show.

Quotes from the Audience:

Wonderful! Brought tears to my eyes at points. Deborah and I were thrilled by the five actors, the script, the music and the staging. Five stars in both senses of the word. See this if you can!
-  Mich Kabay 

Hello friends,
Sitting in my seat at Montpelier's City Hall Arts Center this evening, I was reminded of the transformative power of theater. Lost Nation Theater's season opener--Lauren Gunderson's "Silent Sky"--is a stunning piece, based on the true story of astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, expertly performed by five talented actors. I will think differently about the stars from now on.  Support live theater in the Green Mountain State and carve out some time to see this outstanding show in the next few weeks.
Warm regards,  Pat  Boera
