Aquarium Partners with ICT for Presentation of Dr. Keeling’s Curve Starring Mike Farrell
2014-10-09 · By Editor
The Aquarium of the Pacific in partnership with the International City Theatre will present a performance of the play Dr. Keeling’s Curve by playwright George Shea. This one-man show will be performed by actor Mike Farrell, star of the TV show MASH.
Farrell will play scientist Dr. David Keeling, whose research on atmospheric carbon dioxide levels led to the iconic chart now known as the Keeling Curve. This documentation of rising CO2 levels was among the first early warnings about global climate change. A question-and-answer session will be held after the performance.
The Aquarium champions the visual and performing arts as a way to explore science and environmental issues from new perspectives and attract new audiences. Previously, the Aquarium of the Pacific has hosted the Long Beach Opera, Long Beach Ballet, Long Beach Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players, Long Beach Chorale, and several exhibits by artists, photographers, and sculptors.
Dr. Keeling’s Curve is November 8, 2014; doors open at 7:30 p.m., performance runs 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Center Theater, Long Beach Convention Center, 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802
