Prof. Gigi Jennewein Fenlon in Cast of Indianapolis Production of Silent Sky
July 10, 2018
In Silent Sky, a play being staged in Indianapolis by Summit Performance Indianapolis, "Gigi Jennewein provides the support and levity needed during Henrietta’s challenges and Annie’s new interests," notes a NUVO review. "Her whimsical Scottish persona is delightful."
Lisa Gauthier Mitchison calls the production a "stellar staging" by the new women-based theatrical group. "The play by Lauren Gunderson is based on a little-known female astronomer, Henrietta Leavitt, who fought for equal recognition for her work while she also balked against social convention, single-mindedly immersing herself in a career at a time when most women were relegated to being wives and mothers."
The play is being staged at the Phoenix Theatre Cultural Centre through July 22.
