Brilliant. Passionate. Defiant. Tonight the 18th-century scientific genius Emilie du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she died with: love or philosophy, head or heart? In this seductively theatrical rediscovery of one of history's most intriguing women, Emilie defends her life and loves, and in the process creates a legacy that alters the course of physics. Starring Acting Company member Sara Barker as Emilie.
