UPDATE: Congrats to Chanscom, who won the Family 4 Pack to the Nov. 19 performance of "Brilliance!" I'll send you an email with details. I'll announce the winner for the Dec. 3 performance on Monday, Nov. 21. Thanks to everyone who has participated!
What do you get when you mix science with family-friendly theater? "Brilliance!" according to the Geffen Playhouse. The theater's in-house education partner, Story Pirates, today kicked off performances of this kid-focused comedy about Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie.
Created as a companion show to Alan Alda's "Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie," which opened at the Geffen Playhouse Nov. 1, this light-hearted look at the first woman to win a Nobel Prize is geared toward kids ages 5 and up.
According to the theater, "[T]he Geffen Playhouse Story Pirates will inspire audiences of all ages to laugh and cheer their way through a fast-paced and interactive exploration of Madame Curie's radioactive discoveries."
An added bonus for the audience: You can also stay for snacks and meet the cast after the show. This sounds like a great way to introduce kids to theater -- and to reinforce the idea that girls can rock at science, too!

Los Angeles, CA 90024
Remaining performances: Nov. 19, Dec. 3, Dec. 10 (11 a.m.)
