Plan-B Theatre Company: Virtue

Courtesy Plan-B Theatre Company
Christy Summerhays as Hildegard of Bingen

Hildegard of Bingen was a 12th century abbess, composer, healer, and visionary. Everyone from the Pope to the lowliest novitiate believed she was in direct communication with God. But mid-life, Hildegard's visions changed, and some historians believe it was because she fell in love with another woman. The story is the basis of Utah playwright Tim Slover’s latest work, and Friday, we’re talking about this fascinating woman, and the search for balance between spirituality and the gift of love.

Plan-B Theatre Company's Virtue runs through February 26th. The show is sold out, but there will be a pre-paid waiting list one hour before each show at the Rose Wagner Performing  Arts Center Box Office. For more information, visit planbtheatre.org

Sunday night at 7:00 p.m., Cathedral Church of St. Mark in Salt Lake City will hold their compline service focused on the life and music of Hildegard of Bingen. The event is free and open to the public. [231 E 100 S | map]
