And Starring Jonathon Young as Nikola Tesla

Brilliant! is a dizzyingly theatrical and fast paced exploration of the
man who ushered in the modern wireless age.  Physical, stylish, playful,
and irreverent it tells the story of a visionary so consumed by the
impulse to create that it becomes the thing that destroys him and those
few that manage to come close to him. 

At the dawn of the 20th Century, Nikola Tesla's fame shone brighter than
Edison, Marconi, and a host of other inventors who would eventually take
the credit for the work of this obsessive and eccentric pioneer.  The
darling of the social scene, he was also a charismatic showman.  But
when his obsession turns to creating a system of free and unlimited
energy as well as a wireless world-wide communication network to unite
humanity, the forces of industry and government turn against him.

Witness the spectacle, genius, passion, and inovation that provided the
original charge to one of Vancouver's most exciting and innovative
theatre companies.  A production from the company that created last
year's award-winning hit The Fall along with such other creations as The
One That Got Away, Flop, Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands, and The Score.

Please direct all responses and inquiries directly to the theatre or
association listed in the e-drive notice.
