THAT PHYSICS SHOW Celebrates Landmark 500 Performances Off-Broadway

That Physics Show, recipient of the 2016 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience," written and performed by lifetime physics demonstrator David Maiullo, will celebrate its 500th performance on December 23rd. The show is the first of the three science-based shows presented by The Science Theater Company, the newly formed theatre company that "uses the magic of theatre to make science fun," founded by Producer Eric Krebs. In addition to That Physics Show, are That Chemistry Show and That Inventions Show which are all presented at The Playroom Theater (151 West 46th Street - between Broadway & 6th Avenue) and will continue through May 26, 2019.

In an earlier statement Eric Krebs, producer of the Science Theater Company, stated, " When we started That Physics Show, I had no idea that this would develop into a long-running 'library' of interesting science shows. We are now working on developing That Math Show and That Astronomy Show, as well as a number of others. I had thought that I was creating an entertainment for smart nerds. Now we have a regular flow of grandparents, parents, kids, schools and camps, and it couldn't make me happier. With the emphasis on STEM education, I think we have found our special niche."

That Physics Show, which won the 2016 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience," has run almost 500 performances and recently opened in Beijing, China in a Mandarin version. The show features physics wizard David Maiullo who based the show on the notion that "It's Not Magic, it's Physics!"

That Chemistry Show, now in its second year was created by Borislaw Bilash, long time chemistry professor and educator. Some 30 demonstrations, each with a name range from "Dragon's Breath and "Elephant Toothpaste" to "Exploding Cloud" and "Genie in a Bottle."

That Inventions Show is the newest addition to the science family, presented in association with "The Museum of Interesting Things" and its founder Denny Daniel. The show traces the history of inventions from 1850 to the present and includes hands-on demonstrations of the first sound recordings, early projections and film, steam engines, telephones, ingenious toys and a multitude of other electric, electronic and mechanical inventions that have led to our current world.
