First Folio’s “Silent Sky” is a Beautiful Play”

**** Highly Recommended **** “Silent Sky”, the story of Henrietta Swan Leavitt, “the most famous woman astronomer you never heard of”, is an absolutely beautiful play with stellar performances by the entire cast, led by Cassandria Bissell.  I was so moved I had to keep wiping away tears for about the last five minutes.    4 Spotlights
