Video: ‘Miss Mitchell’s Comet’ in Tampa

Powerstories Theatre in Tampa presented MISS MITCHELL’S COMET on March 12, 2021. The play tells the story of Maria Mitchell, America’s first female astronomer who sparked an international controversy in 1847 when she discovered a comet — a discovery that the great observatories in Europe were reluctant to recognize because she was an American, an amateur, and a woman. Katerina Yancey stars as Maria Mitchell, Scott Cooper plays all the male roles.
