How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This show was a very mixed bag of strong performances by the actors that were limited by confusing elements in the production; while the substance of Tesla and his work was interesting and presented well, too much time was spent with exchanges with the bellhop and two characters - Edison, and especially Marconi and Mark Twain, were exaggerated and lost some potential impact. As a result, the performance seemed to change its rhythm at times and almost come to a near stop. Overall however the play was interesting as it added to our knowledge of a relative unknown and his downward path.
