A new play examines one of the most underappreciated women in physics and isn't afraid of Newtonian mechanics. "It gets real math-y in there," says actor Alexandra Blouin. 

Blouin, fellow actor Charlie Heinberg and director Catherine L. Brown discuss Emilie: La Marquise Du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, a new show at Redwood Curtain Theater about theoretical physicist Emilie du Châtelet

Also on Artwaves: vibraphonists. "It's a tough instrument to maintain, to be really good at," says Mike LaBolle of the vibraphone trio Good Vibes.

Good Vibes will perform during Wine and Jazz at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on Sunday Feb 19th 3-5pm.
