Loved this show, right up my alley! Surreal, trippy, philosophical, funny with some expert clowning and magic. Reminds me of a Steve Martin play mixed with the Marx Brothers and Mel Brooks.... full review

Spectacular. A tiny slice of whimsy and magic in a vast and inventive world. You might even end up on stage !... full review

Fantastic show. A real-life clown and a real-life mentalist explain the complexities of Schrodinger, string theory, and time travel. They know way more than you might expect.... full review

Had the pleasure of seeing "The Universe (101)" on opening night. Its was a fun original show! A bit of Theater, a bit of Comedy, Mentalism, Hypnosis, and a whole lot of Entertainment. They put a lot of work and creativity into this show, and it really stands out!! Go see it and have a fun night out!!!!!... full review

At times there was a bit too much metaphysical language for me, but the combination of a clown and mentalist from two different time periods meeting up by accident and then trying to put time back together again was very entertaining, especially with on-stage audience participation.... full review

The two performers, Ian Harvey Stone (FB) as Evanion and Matthew Godfrey (FB) as Norbut Yetso bring an energy and sense of zanyness to their characters that makes the show irresistable. They play, they clown, and yet have an earnestness in what they are doing that makes it all work. There is magic (I’m still not sure how they did the twist at the end), and there is science, and it all comes together in a wonderful whole.

A witty and inspired magic show with great chemistry between the two lead actors that features hypnotism, time travel, quantum physics, metaphysics, time loops, and quite possibly the end of the universe.... full review
CHRISTOPHER KESSLER certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Derren Brown meets Monty Python. It is a unique and entertaining blend of slapstick and quantum mechanics, illusions and time distortions, mentalism and teleportation, hypnosis and the destruction of the universe. The audience is involved in the performance to such a degree that the final predictions are so strong that some eventually suspect each other of being confederates. It is worth the price of admission to see the expressions on their faces after the final curtain when they realize that they aren’t. Highly recommended. ... full review

What would happen if you put a clown and a mentalist in a modest hadron collider? This fantastic show! There's something for the brainiacs, something for the laymen (lemon?), something for everyone!... full review
