Weekend Giveaway: Tickets to 'Brilliance!' at Geffen Playhouse

Zoe Jarman stars as Marie Curie in "Brilliance!" at the Geffen Playhouse

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!

Geffen Playhouse
10886 Le Conte Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90024

Remaining performances: Nov. 19, Dec. 3, Dec. 10 (11 a.m.)
Tickets: $15 (adults) $10 (children)

Thanks so much for the tickets to the performance Laura! My god-sister who is 5 was tickled pink by her first live theater experience and has talked non stop the last few days about science, atoms, and Marie Curie :) We're already talking about going back to see some more of the Story Pirates productions!
