We Stand Together
American Stage condemns racism, hatred, and injustice and affirms unequivocally that Black lives matter. We are deeply disturbed by the continued assaults of bigotry and senseless violence perpetrated against
Black individuals in America.
We know, too, that we must do better and we must do more to be accountable in our role in challenging systemic and insidious racism. Change has been too slow. We must demand more of ourselves and of one another as we strive to make a positive impact in cultivating a society where love and respect and opportunity are not offered on condition of the color of one’s skin.
American Stage is committed to listening, to learning and to acting in support of a more just world.

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours”. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications in this luminous, witty and inspiring true story of a brilliant, history-making woman.
“…sheer magic…bursts of smart, infectious humor.” – San Francisco Chronicle
