German playwright Bertolt Brecht's The Life of Galileo provides a glimpse into the world of the great Italian philosopher and scientist. This brilliant man knew the pleasure of discovery, the empowering nature of knowledge -- and more than the powers-that-be of the day preferred. He was persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church for publishing scientific discoveries that were considered crazy and at odds with the dogma of the day. As he fights to share his discoveries with the common man, he's forced to consider what leaders owe their followers -- especially in the face of mortal danger. The past parallels the present in Brecht's highly theatrical parable about the struggle between science and authority. See it this spring at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center.
