No late seating, so beware! And be patient when being directed to your seats/ getting your program. FYI, the even numbered seats are near the theatre door with odds opposite; all two-digit seat numbers (i.e., 29, 31, etc.) are on the "sides" with the three-digit ones (i.e., 102, 104, etc.) facing centre stage.

Quotes & Highlights

This production marks San Jose Stage Company’s first joint project with an international partner; the original Canadian staging won five Jessie Awards from the Vancouver Theatre, including one for Outstanding Play and one for Outstanding Production.


An explosive theatrical exploration of one of the most formidable minds of the past one hundred years. BRILLIANT! reveals the rivalry between Nikola Tesla and his former employer Thomas Edison through a theatrically rich and visually-driven tale of obsession, genius and the fragility of an ego defined by the impulse to create.

With crackling theatrical originality, BRILLIANT! explores a radically inventive mind that dreamed on a scale too large for its time.
