About the Creators

From the Matheatre website: "Matheatre was created in 2006 when Marc Gutman and Sadie Bowman decided to write a show so they could quit their jobs and have a cross-country adventure. The result was Calculus: The Musical! which they toured for two years. Though Marc and Sadie are happy to be off the road, the tour continues under the supervision of Know Theatre of Cincinnati. Marc and Sadie are currently working on a number of projects, including new shows, new albums, and new culinary inventions.
 
 "Sadie Bowman (Partner), actor, writer, and musician, was a contributor to Minneapolis’ vibrant theatre and comedy scene for several years. She co-founded Mean Sisters Productions, a women’s comic theatre trio, in late 2003. They were the creators of the acclaimed Tales of the Socially Inept (2004), the popular monthly Mean Sisters Variety Show (2004-05) and Private Fantasies (2005). She earned a bachelors degree in Theatre Arts from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and from Edison State Community College in Piqua, Ohio. While she has extensive experience in creating and performing music and comedy, the majority of her mathematical education came from Square One TV.
