    Upon hearing the name Hedy Lamarr, who do you see? A smoldering  temptress, perched on velour cushions, in the 1949 Hollywood classic Samson and Delilah? Or a demure  and professionally-clad inventor, deep in the throes of ingenuity, embarking on scientific ideas that were generations ahead of her time? History At Play introduces you to a  woman clouded in a fantasy world that only Tinseltown could create.  Experience this immersive living  history event and watch as a young Austrian refugee transforms to become the most beautiful woman in the  world, while inventing technology that would forever change the world. 

    Experience this Immersive Living History Experience and watch a young Austrian refugee transform to become the most beautiful woman in the world, while inventing technology that would forever change society.  A skilled electrical engineer when off the Hollywood lot, she patented in 1942 a “spread-spectrum communication system” that allowed radios to hop between frequencies, thereby avoiding detection and jamming. Her invention, used by the Navy during the War, was the basis for what would later become wireless communications.

    Tinseltown Inventor™: The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, Hedy Lamarr features HAP, LLC’s Founder and Artistic Director, Judith Kalaora, as a woman clouded in a fantasy world that only Tinseltown could create. The performance runs approximately 60 minutes and is followed by a Q&A with audience members. Suitable for ages 13 and older, the program contains content of a mature nature, and viewer discretion is advised. This production, conducted in authentic historical attire, with vintage props, and professionally designed sets, has enjoyed nearly 500 runs nationwide since 2013.

    Join us for lunch and our first event of the season!  This event will take place on the terrace at MIT’s beautiful Endicott House, 80 Haven Street, in Dedham.  Lunch will begin at 12:00pm, with a cash bar from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.  The presentation will start at 1:00 pm.
