SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE and other songs
By Marc Acito
Directed by Helen R. Murray


In 1937, a physics professor at Princeton University received a call. The internationally-renowned classical singer Marian Anderson was giving a concert at the McCarter Theatre at Princeton. But because she was African-American, Anderson was denied a hotel room. Instead she accepted an invitation to stay at a professor's home. That professor was Albert Einstein. Secrets of the Universe is based on the true relationship of these titanic figures. It is a celebration of the union of hearts, minds and souls in a quest to unlock this vast universe’s biggest secrets. The Fox’s Executive Producer, Helen R. Murray, directed the world premiere of Acito’s non-musical version of this show and teams up with him, again, to direct the premiere of this latest, version - a breathtaking play with music featuring some of Colorado’s most beloved performers!
