How was your experience?
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 worst, generic characterization of the lead. Also, there was too little visual distinction between the older, isolated Tesla and the younger one. The other characters were so over the top that they were more like cartoon characters than dramatic ones, though they did provide some comic relief. Unfortunately the comedy overshadowed the potential interest of their historical roles in Tesla's life and times.
