This Spring, Arena Stage presents R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE written and directed by D.W. Jacobs, from the life, work and writings of R. Buckminster Fuller from May 28 - July 4, 2010.Does humanity have a chance to survive on Spaceship Earth? Explore this question with Renaissance man R. Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome. Join us for an unforgettable journey inside one of the most remarkable minds of the 20th century in a dazzling, virtuoso multimedia performance. A hero of the green movement, Bucky framed many of the great environmental ideas of his time and ours. This is your chance to get to know the man and his world-saving mission in a play "as startlingly funny as it is intellectually stimulating" (San Francisco Examiner). It may not only change your life but the life of our planet as well.Founded in 1950 by Zelda Fichandler, Thomas Fichandler and Edward Mangum, Arena Stage was one of the nation's original resident theaters, and has a distinguished record of leadership and innovation in the field. With the opening of the new Mead Center for American Theater in 2010, Arena Stage will have emerged as a leading center for the production, development and study of the American theater. Now in its sixth decade, Arena Stage serves a diverse annual audience of more than 200,000.
