Hedy Lamarr, glamorous siren of the silver screen, was more than ‘The Most Beautiful Woman in the World’. She invented Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum Technology that makes the world of wireless communication tick. From Austria to Hollywood, WWII, torpedoes, ecstasy, and intrigue to the very cell phone in your pocket, Hedy Lamarr is there!

Heather Massie enchants the audience as Hedy Lamarr, along with Jimmy Stewart, Bette Davis, Louis B Mayer, and more! A 36-character solo play where the audience summons Hedy to unearth the truth behind how a glamorous Hollywood film star could create an invention which launched today’s wireless technology revolution! Discover how this exquisite genius invented technology for torpedoes during WWII that we now use in cell phones, WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth!

Fulbright Specialist & Performer/Playwright/Producer Heather Massie brings her 26x Award-Winning, Internationally Acclaimed play for a Special Feature in her Uptown Manhattan 10027 Harlem neighborhood! Massie premiered the show Off Broadway in 2016 and has since toured it through over a dozen countries including the US, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Ukraine, Iceland, Egypt, Tunisia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and virtually in Germany and Switzerland. She will soon feature in Algeria, Canada, and Zambia. Having studied Astrophysics with dreams of becoming an astronaut before becoming a professional actor, Massie now marries her loves of art and science by celebrating the stories of women in science, through theatre. Her mission is to inspire audiences, to encourage young women in science and technology, and to establish Hedy Lamarr as a role model for intelligence, ingenuity, and invention.
