"Gravity," Stanford’s 72-Hour Musical

May 21, 2016

Experience a performance from Gravity, a new musical written by Joel Chapman, ’14, MA ’15, Weston Gaylord, ’15, Matt Herrero, ’17, Jessia Hoffman, ’15, and Ken Savage ’14, MA ’15 as part of Stanford Art Institute's first 72-Hour Musical Project. This performance also features Hannah Hsieh, ’17, and Max Savage, ’16.

When modern-day physicist Sophie travels back in time to 1666, she accidentally prevents young Isaac Newton from having his famous falling-apple epiphany, setting history dangerously off course. Infusing hilarious historical sendup with the sexy sounds of 2016, Gravity is a fresh and delightful story of romance, time travel, feminism and the art of science. It features Enlightenment icons Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, Margaret Cavendish, King Louis XIV, Edmund Halley and more! Gravity is being further developed with the support of San Francisco-based Encore Theatre Company and Z Space.
