Marie Curie #3
Dear Friends:

If you love art and science, then the following theater performance is one you cannot miss--add to the mix the history of a woman that went against all odds to make her place in history, and you are in for a memorable evening.

I grew up hearing about Madame Curie. My father, Alvaro R. Tejeda, an inventor, dedicated his life's work to research and development on water purifying systems (our kitchen was always a lab). He idolized her work, and frequently made references to her as an example that a woman's accomplishments, regardless of how they may challenge the status quo, will inevitably get the deserved recognition from peers based on merit. Marie Curie did just that and more, by becoming the "first woman" in a long list of notables. Together with her husband, she was awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study of the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize. In 1911, she received a second Nobel Prize, this time in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity.

Manya: The Living History of Marie Curie is a one-woman play written and performed by Susan Marie Frontczak and produced by Jen Myronuk--two women providing an inspiring take on Marie Curie's legacy.

was a French-Polish physicist and chemist, famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity.
She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields, and the only person to win in multiple sciences.
She was also the first female professor at the University of Paris (La Sorbonne), and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris. Wikipedia
