The Science Theater Company has announced extensions for the off-Broadway runs of That Physics Show and That Chemistry Show. It has also announced a new show, That Inventions Show, that will begin performances on September 15. All shows run at the Playroom Theater.

That Physics Show, recipient of the 2016 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, is written and performed by lifetime physics demonstrator David Maiullo (and his alternate, fellow physics demonstrator Andrew Yolleck). Based on the hundreds of physics experiments that are presented at physics conferences and in classrooms across the country, the production features segments on motion, momentum, vacuum, friction, energy, density, fluid motion, sound waves and sound vibration, light waves, temperature, and many more from the world in which we live — a world controlled by physics.

That Chemistry Show, meanwhile, is described as follows: "A candle that moves water, a paper cup that won't burn, a firefly without fire. An atomic flash, weaponized sugar, a hydrogen bomb. Genie in a bottle, secret writing, elephant toothpaste...Yes! All these and more make up That Chemistry Show, 80 minutes of incredible exploration led by longtime mad scientist Borislaw Bilash."

That Inventions Show, presented in association with the Museum of Interesting Things and its founder, Denny Daniel, will, according to a press release, "trace 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."
