HEDY! The Life & Inventions of Hedy Lamarr
2PM and 7PM, The Cube, Moss Arts Center
This theatre production explores the life, inventions, and person of Hedy Lamarr, Viennese-born Hollywood film star of the 1930s-1950s. Hedy Lamarr was more than the most beautiful woman in the world. She invented frequency hopping and spread spectrum technology that make the world of wireless communication tick. From Austria to Hollywood, WWII, torpedoes, ecstasy, and intrigue to the very cell phone in your pocket, she was there! The true story of Hollywood glamour and scientific genius is written and performed by Heather Massie. Cost is free and tickets are required.
