Calculus The Musical
"Calculus: The Musical! is a comic “review” of the concepts and history of Calculus." The musical was originally created by Matheatre, composed of Marc Gutman and Sadie Bowman. The musical used the story of the development of Calculus to tie together songs that Marc had created as mnemonics when he was a teacher. Gutman and Bowman launched the musical's tour at the Minnesota Fringe Festival in August 2006, and continued to tour the show to Fringe Festivals, High Schools, Colleges and Conferences until spring of 2008. In Autumn of 2008, Matheatre licensed the show to the Know Theatre of Cincinnati who continues the tour to this day.
Current Cast Members: Breona Conrad and Josh Murphy.
Famous quotes containing the words musical and/or calculus:
“If we cannot sing of faith and triumph, we will sing our despair. We will be that kind of bird. There are day owls, and there are night owls, and each is beautiful and even musical while about its business.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I try to make a rough music, a dance of the mind, a calculus of the emotions, a driving beat of praise out of the pain and mystery that surround me and become me. My poems are meant to make your mind get up and shout.”
—Judith Johnson Sherwin (b. 1936)
