Producer Eric Krebs announced That Chemistry Show, written and performed by Borislaw Bilash, will begin performances on July 22 at The Physics Theater, 300 W. 43rd Street.
The show that uses science to achieve nearly magical effects shows a candle that moves water, a paper cup that won’t burn and a firefly without fire.
Throw in an atomic flash, weaponized sugar, secret writing and elephant toothpaste and you get an 80-minute show where science meets show business.
Bilash has been a professor of chemistry and physics at numerous institutions, including New Jersey Institute of Technology and New Jersey’s Liberty Science Center.
“I figured that if That Physics Show could play to over 30,000 audience members since it opened off-Broadway in February, 2016, maybe we were on to something,” Krebs said. “I wondered what a chemistry show might look like.”
That Chemistry Show joins That Physics Show, the 2016 Drama Desk Award Winning Off-Broadway show now in its second year.
That Chemistry Show will play Saturday and Sunday July 22 and 23, August 12, 13, 19, and 20, September 9, 10, 16, 17, and October 1 at noon.
