Theatrical Reading: “Thoreau and Einstein: Science and the Cosmic Order”
By Connie Baxter Marlow
Connie Baxter Marlow, talk show host of “Mystics, Alive and Well” will interview Henry David Thoreau and Dr. Albert Einstein for the second time with a theatrical reading: “Thoreau and Einstein: Science and the Cosmic Order.” She will explore the two legendary men’s views on man’s understanding of the nature of reality. Last July Marlow brought Mr. Thoreau and Dr. Einstein together for the first time in history at the Thoreau Annual Gathering to discuss how mystical experiences had informed their lives and led them to be societal change agents of their times in her show “Thoreau and Einstein: Two Mystics Who Changed the World.” This is a scholarly piece consisting entirely of original quotations. Thoreau is played by Richard Smith, Thoreau interpreter/impersonator and Einstein is played by Andrew Cameron Bailey, filmmaker/author.
Marlow has been bringing the mystical aspects of Thoreau to light since 2004 when she produced a film series “THE AMERICAN EVOLUTION: Voices of America” featuring Thoreau, Native American elders, a Muslim Imam and others. Her first theatrical production “Thoreau the Futurist and the Emerging Human” featuring Thoreau and his Indian guide and hero Joseph Polis premiered at the Thoreau Society Annual Gathering in 2011.
