GALILEO performed by Burbage Theatre Co.
Aurora :: 276 Westminster Street :: Fri + Sat :: Variable times :: PAY WHAT YOU CAN!
Galileo examines the tension between the pursuit of knowledge and the power of official ideology, and is widely considered one of Brecht’s masterworks. In the wake of Copernicus’s discovery that the sun is the center of our solar system, Galileo Galilei perceives about him a time of scientific upheaval and general improvement, providing a vision for generations to come grounded in the joyful and fevered pursuit of knowledge. But his hopes of a general enlightenment are cut short when his heretical discoveries about the solar system bring him to the attention of the Inquisition. Tickets and times here!
