Following a sold-out nine-week run at the 62-seat Playroom Theater, That Physics Show, an evening of "scientific magic" by lifetime physics demonstrator David Maiullo, will move to the 180-seat Elektra Theatre for an open-ended off-Broadway engagement. Performances are set to begin on February 26 in advance of a March 9 opening. Eric Krebs produces and directs.

Based on the hundreds of physics experiments that are presented at physics conferences and in classrooms across the country, That Physics Show features segments on motion, momentum, vacuum, friction, energy, density, fluid motion, sound waves and sound vibration, light waves, temperature, and many more. Maiullo has been a physics demonstrator at Rutgers University for over 20 years and most recently became a regular on the Weather Channel and a presenter at national physics festivals.

"A concept for a physics show that I have been thinking about for 15 years has suddenly become an exciting reality," says Krebs. "I would not have imagined that physics could be so entertaining, but in watching Dave Maiullo for nine weeks, I have become a true believer. That Physics Show fulfills one of my passions...once again exciting people about off-Broadway theater."
