This thoroughly cool, at times comical, and completely creepy show comes from the bordering-on-sick minds of Penn & Teller's Teller and performer-host Todd Robbins. This interactive theatrical experience opens in pitch blackness, where the ethereal sights, sounds -- and touches -- are all the more effective, achieved via the combination of wickedly clever ghost stories and eerie stage illusions. And you know you're in for a fun and terrifying time when the advisories include strobe effects, theatrical haze, interactive elements, adult themes -- and nudity. The show ran off-Broadway in 2010 to acclaim from The New York Times among others, which said "this wild, wicked show is not just a screamfest after all; it's a pretty good piece of theater."

Everyone knows that Marie Curie was brilliant. But most people don’t know that she was also the silliest and most hilarious scientist that ever existed! Okay, so maybe she wasn't. But we can pretend she was, right?
In Brilliance!, the Geffen Playhouse Story Pirates will inspire audiences of all ages to laugh and cheer their way through a fast-paced and interactive exploration of Madame Curie's radioactive discoveries, which made her the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize. This companion piece to Alan Alda's Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie, is intended for families and pretty much anyone who could use a laugh while learning about the mysteries of the universe and the sheer brilliance of Marie Curie.
