NIKOLA TESLA DROPS THE BEAT Adds Performance at Adirondack Theatre Festival

Adirondack Theatre Festival's production of Nikola Tesla Drops the Beat will have an added 2 p.m. matinee performance Saturday, July 1, at the Charles R. Wood Theater.

Being the best-selling show in ATF history (over 2,600 tickets sold), the extension is a result of popular demand. While the show's demand would sustain a longer extension, the tight timeframe of Adirondack Theatre Festival's summer season only allows room for one added performance.

Tickets are $34-45 and are available at the Wood Theater Box Office, online at or by calling (518) 480-4878. Many remaining performances are sold-out so ATF encourages individuals to purchase tickets in advance.

Known for its music, lighting and choreography, this electronic pop musical is about the life of Nikola Tesla and his feud with Thomas Edison. Told in a modern way, it is described as "Hamilton meets Tesla."

Remaining performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 28-Saturday, July 1, with 2 p.m. matinee performances Wednesday and Saturday.

Founded in 1994, ATF is a non-profit, professional theatre. Each summer ATF produces a season of theatre for an audience of both locals and tourists (9,000+) using professional artists from New York City and across the country. Last summer yielded a record-breaking season of sold-out performances, nearly doubling attendance and subscribership in just the past two years. ATF operates under a Small Professional Theatre Agreement with Actors' Equity Association. ATF is the only professional summer theatre in the Capital District, Saratoga and Adirondack regions of upstate New York solely committed to producing new and contemporary works of theatre. Its 23rd season is comprised entirely of new works.
