This award-winning one-woman show explores the life, inventions, and person of Hedy Lamarr, Viennese-born Hollywood film star of the 1930s-50s.

“Hedy Lamarr, glamorous siren of the silver screen, was more than the most beautiful woman in the world. She invented frequency hopping and spread spectrum technology that make the world of wireless communication tick. From Austria to Hollywood, WWII, torpedoes, ecstasy, and intrigue to the very cell phone in your pocket, she was there!”

Hedy Lamar…Hollywood’s secret weapon. The most beautiful woman in the world. If WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth had a mother, her name would be Hedy!

In the 1980s, Hedy’s spread spectrum frequency-hopping invention, Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), paid off with the advent of cellphones and standardized wireless communications.
