This play is an exploration of the extraordinary life of legendary Nobel Prize-winning Physicist Richard Feynman. Feynman began as a young man working on the Manhattan project, and then created a reputation as an inspiring and charismatic teacher, a brilliant physicist, as well as a practical joker. He had a flamboyant love of life. He was nationally visible as the scientist on the Presidential Commission investigating the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and wasn’t afraid to ruffle feathers.
Feynman, a fascinating and inspiring figure, is remembered by many. This play probes under the surface of genius, to find the heart of the man inside.
“Who knew quantum electrodynamics could be so much fun?” —NY Post. “…a seductive mix of science, human affections, moral courage, and comic eccentricity…” —NY Magazine. “The play itself is a kind of proof, dramatically illustrating how a man who happens to be a genius elegantly and movingly works through the human problem of how to face the end of his life…” —The New Yorker. “The second act is about the personal life of everybody in the audience, not just Feynman’s life alone.” —Alan Alda.
