Passionate. Brilliant. Defiant. Tonight, 18th century scientific genius Emilie Du Châtelet is back and determined to answer the question she died with: love or philosophy, head or heart? In this highly theatrical rediscovery of one of history’s most vibrant, witty and intriguing women, Emilie defends her life and loves, and ends up with both a formula and a legacy that permeates history.
