Alan Alda's new play, Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie, has extended its run at the Geffen Playhouse, by a week, and will now play through December 18. Dan Sullivan has directed the production.

This bioplay delves into the life and romance of one of the most brilliant female scientists in history. Famous for her groundbreaking research in radioactivity, Curie was the only person ever to win two Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences, but not without a struggle. Celebrated but then rejected by the popular press as both a woman and scientist, Curie is left to define her place in society -- and history -- on her own terms.

Anna Gunn stars as Marie Curie, with the cast also featuring Hugo Armstrong (Émile), John de Lancie (Pierre), Dan Donohue (Paul), Natacha Roi(Jeanne), Leonard Kelly-Young (Terbougie / Törnebladh), and Sarah Zimmerman (Marguerite).

The design team includes Tom Lynch (set), Rita Ryack (costumes), Daniel Ionazzi (lighting), and Jon Gottlieb (sound).
