THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED.
In 1906, the dashing 26-year-old zoologist Austin Clark braved the San Francisco Earthquake, took part in a dangerous scientific expedition on the high seas, and found never-before-seen creatures of the deep. His exhilarating adventures unfolded in daily letters to his bride in Boston, and his words form the core of this solo show featuring charismatic young actor Josh Sticklin. Meet Clark in an interactive production that fluidly mixes film, images, and a stunning soundscape to create a world of scientific adventure. Then step into Sant Ocean Hall to explore the museum Austin Clark called home.
