Review from Guest

I understand that the supporting characters were supposed to be exaggerated versions of their true selves (as stated in the Playbill) but this show had a school play/farcical quality to it. I've seen the work of the actors who played Edison and...continued

This play is for anyone who is interested in Tesla or who is fascinated by history. This play will make you thank Tesla for alternating current electrical system, and will make you realize how much more technologically advanced the world would be...continued

Review from CitronGale

I was curious about the subject, Nikola Tesla, after seeing the movie "The Prestige." This is an important story that should be told in a more consistent dramatic style. A change in direction ( & some editing) would've improved the play...continued

Review from Lxfan

Lovely little theater, full of history and well located. The play had some lively performances and inventive use of video, but overall it failed to take this often marginalized figure and move him to a more prominent place in the history of...continued

Review from Z

The whole was less than the sum of its parts... Despite an interesting subject and the amusing hamminess of the secondary characters, I felt that the impact of this play was lessened by the rushed performance, unclearly enunciated dialog, and...continued

Review from Andrew Cordle

Nice theatre, but couldn't either hear or understanding some of the actors sometimes. The action was difficult to follow for a while until the comedic lines about midway trough the play. Otherwise a good performance... Would have to give it a...continued

Review from bonnie ohrnstein

Poor acting, difficult to follow. could'nt wait for it to end. My friend felt the same way.
You just don't expect this in NYC where you have people from all walks of life come
here to perform and get their work published. I was surprised that it...continued

Review from Norman Schechter

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...continued

Review from sputnik

The life of visionary scientist-inventor Nikola Tesla should inspire some electrifying theater, but for me, Shari Graubert’s bio-play didn’t hold a charge. In broad strokes, she sketches events and meetings that shape Tesla’s career but offers no...continued

Tesla! I fell in love with his intellect, his ideas and then i grew upset at his sense of business. It was very insightful. I learned a lot and confirmed things I've read previously regarding Edison, Tesla etc. Great Performance by all the actors...continued

Review from George Pappas

I never head of this great inventor until the electric car was
recently successful. The acting is brilliant, especially the lead, James Taylor. All the cast is exceptional and I view many Broadway and off-Broadway shows. You are moved by his...continued

Review from mavda1

Nikola Tesla was brilliant, and quite possibly the greatest inventor this side of DaVinci.
Tesla is a play that does admirably well in portraying his genius and is well worth your time.
James Lee Taylor plays the younger, idealistic and confident...continued

Review from Goldstar Member

The play was very informative about his life and quite an interesting production. Tesla was a forgotten genius who if his works had been implemented as he wanted would have resulted in all of us having free electricity generated from the sun as...continued

Review from Federica

The play was awful, the directing was like one of a primary school play, the videos were terrible and, most importantly, the story of Nikola Tesla, great inventor, recognized by the scientific community (Tesla for example is the unit measure of...continued

Review from stevenstromer

A very quaint theatre and a very enjoyable show. Acting is of mixed quality, but the story of Tesla told on stage is so unique that even the lesser performances serve their purposes. There are plenty of laughs, and much to think about in learning...continued
