Richard Feynman was a true iconoclast, a brilliant theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner who played the bongos and was beloved by his students. A rock star among his fellow scientists, he was also enormously popular with non-scientists for his work presenting scientific topics to the general public in an engaging and understandable way. He was perhaps most well-known for his hilarious collections of anecdotes from his life and work, including Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! This up-close and personal portrait, performed by Jeff Garrett, relives a day in the life of Mr. Feynman, presenting scenes from both his professional life (working on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger inquiry) to his personal life (the death of his wife and his own fight with cancer). This touching and laugh-out-loud biographical play brings forth the humor, warmth and personality that made Richard Feynman a beloved figure of 20th-century science. Learn More

A Well Done Show in a perfect Venue
The thing the summary fails to let us know is that while this is not perfect Conan Doyle in origin it is in fact based on several Holmes stories and was developed during the lifetime and with the eventual approval of ACD. This matters because so much of the latter Sherlock Holmes theater/movies uses his characters but loses authenticity.The Broken Mirror is not the equivalent of reading a story but the integrity is there.
Jeff Garret is impressive as he shifts midstep or with a twist from Holmes to Moriarty to Mrs. Hudson to Watson and a half dozen other characters, back and forth in the perfect setting of a Drawing Room with a fireplace in the unique Berkeley Club, a place worth the trip on its own. This is a more conflicted and and troubled Sherlock than the unstoppable force in the books. He and the opponent play a charade and close match.
Not knowing the origins of the story I came with doubts of a Holmes derivative but what you get is the genuine article. Very worthwhile and handy to Telegraph Ave or Shattuck for dining.
