R. Buckminster Fuller Program: Artistic Director’s Welcome

JAN 6, 2011

A welcome note from A.R.T. Artistic Director Diane Paulus.

Welcome to R. Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE!

I am thrilled to present longtime A.R.T. favorite Tommy Derrah as Bucky Fuller in this powerful work written by D. W. Jacobs. Born in Milton and buried just down the street at the Mount Auburn Cemetery, Fuller was a visionary genius and a hero to a whole generation who came of age in the ’60s and ’70s. He was a man ahead of his time, anticipating many of the major challenges of the modern world. From geodesic domes to more efficient automobiles, R. Buckminster Fuller has had a profound influence on modern thought, architecture, and science.

This production is already generating tremendous enthusiasm within our local community and beyond. Read on in this program for more information on BUCKY AND ME, our extensive pre- and post-performance discussion series featuring prominent scientists, designers, architects, artists, environmentalists, and humanitarians who have been inspired by this incredible innovator. I encourage you to come back and see the show again when one of these individuals is speaking. Bring a friend – and introduce someone to the wonderful world of Bucky!

R. Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE is the first offering of Gods and Machines, a theater festival of ancient dramas, modern voices, and visions of the future. Please pick up one of our festival guides in the lobby to learn more about the many exciting productions coming up at the A.R.T. in the next few months.

Thank you, as always, for being part of the A.R.T.!
