Scenes From ‘Curie Me Away’ Matheatre

The Bradbury Science Museum presented the internationally touring musical based on the science, life and discoveries of Marie Curie in its New Mexico premiere Friday evening at Fuller Lodge. From growing up in Russian occupied Poland, where the higher education of women was a punishable crime, to rocking the world as the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, Curie Me Away! is the radical story of a persistent woman who changed our understanding of the universe. The historically based narrative and original songs underscore core chemistry concepts including compounds and reactions, groupings on the periodic table, transmutation and radioactive half-life.
