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

Fantastic chamber music from true experienced and talented professionals. Excellent evening of amazing music in the lovely Julia Morgan Berkeley City Club. Only problem was that the room was too warm and seats too hard.....advise that you bring a cushion from home. Great reception afterwards.
