Updated March 13, 2020: In the interest of public safety, and based upon the recent guidance from the State of California and the cities of Palo Alto and Mountain View, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will cancel the productions of They Promised Her the Moon and Ragtime.

The space race, 1962. With the sky no longer the limit, astronauts circle the heavens and a world record-holding pilot stands ready to join them, forever altering the course of history. If only America will let her. This fascinating theatrical hit from TheatreWorks’ New Works Festival chronicles the incredible true story of Jerrie Cobb, a woman who dreamt of stars, only to wake in a country that couldn’t see the light.
