Description

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.
