Told by all femme voices, The Aviatrix follows Harriet Quimby, the first American woman to get her pilot’s license and the first woman in the world to fly across the English Channel. We follow Harriet as her constant drive to achieve greatness overtakes her relationships, including her friendship with fellow aviatrix, Matilde Moisant.  With a contemporary pop and jazz score, The Aviatrix shares Harriet Quimby's legacy with a new audience and sings the story of this forgotten American hero.
