Apr 1 - May 1, 2022 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Mary Zimmerman brings her celebrated play about one of history’s most imaginative minds back to the Goodman nearly three decades after its acclaimed debut.

Leonardo da Vinci strove to know the world equally through artistic and scientific means. This poetic portrayal of one of history’s most imaginative minds returns to the Goodman nearly three decades after it burst onto the stage in a career-catapulting production for adaptor/director Mary Zimmerman. In a production composed entirely of words from his notebooks and various treatises, da Vinci’s ideas on topics from mathematics, anatomy, architecture and engineering, to philosophy, love and the human spirit come to vivid life.
