The play itself was a mix of special effects, Rocky Horroresque dance breaks, and amusing dialogue. Particularly impressive were the wall to wall light bulbs and the GIANT TESLA COIL. Dear lord, when they turned that thing on, it was just truly frightening... a raw vein of electricity coming right for you, but tapering off before it got close. Great stuff. One of the cast members played both the role of Mark Twain and Thomas Edison, and was literally split down the middle.. his left side was Twain, all crazy haired, dressed in a white suit, and his right side was Edison, with slicked back hair and a black suit.
So naturally I've been reading about Tesla today. He truly was an interesting character, and really did invent the remote control, radio, alternating current, and quite possibly the DEATH RAY.
He also had a thing for pigeons.
P.S. Edison was a bastard who liked to fry elephants in his spare time.
