Doktor Kaboom: LIVE WIRE!
The Electricity Tour
Written and performed by David Epley
Grab your lab coats and safety goggles, because this one-man show can be explosive! Following his sidesplitting sold-out engagement in 2011, Doktor Kaboom is back by popular demand with an all-new interactive science comedy show, this time focused on the amazing power of electricity. Our favorite stand-up scientist with the thick German accent will keep crowds transfixed and rolling on the floor with his increasingly spectacular (and usually successful) experiments. With his hilarious improvisational style, no two shows will be exactly the same--you may even be called on stage to help with one of his zany demonstrations! If you're ready to get psyched about science, just say "ja!" to Doktor Kaboom, who Broadway World calls "a force to be reckoned with… a complete delight!"
For age 7 and up.
Performance Timing: 60 minutes, with no intermission.
Note: Doktor Kaboom will sign programs and DVDs in the lobby outside the Family Theater, following all weekend performances.
