About the Play Tonight, 18th century scientific genius Émilie du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she died with: love or philosophy, head or heart? In this highly theatrical, fast, funny, sexy rediscovery of one of history's most intriguing women, Émilie defends her life and loves; and ends up with both a formula and a legacy that permeates history.
"Émilie is quite the best play I have read in a very long time,"- Robert Schenkkan, Pulitzer-Prize-inning playwright
"The ambitious, non-linear experiment is a highly theatrical romp that literally crackles with electricity." –LA/OC Examiner
