"Beautiful Radiant Things" a Marty Durlin Musical About Anarchist Emma Goldman
KGNU presents a new musical about the anarchist Emma Goldman, the feminist who drew crowds 25,000 and more who were entertained and challenged by her quick wit and audacity. She toured the U.S. 100 years ago speaking in favor of birth control, union rights, free love and free speech. In 1919, she was jailed for "conspiracy to induce persons not to register;" i.e. speaking out against the draft during World War I. She found herself sharing a cell with socialist Kate Richards O'Hare, incarcerated for "seditious utterances."

The play focuses on Goldman's 50th birthday, June 27, 1919, spent in jail. "Beautiful Radiant Things" was written by former KGNU station manager Marty Durlin, now residing in Paonia.

The performances will take place on April 28th at Unity Church, 2855 Folsom St in Boulder (map), and on April 29th at the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Theater, 119 Park Avenue West, on the corner of 20th and Washington in Denver (map).

Admission is $15 day of performance. Doors open 30 minutes prior to the curtain.
