Particle physics collides with theatre ... hilarity ensues.... full review
TEN WEST uncertified reviewer June 10, 2012
A short, sweet and very funny play about physics, energy particles, time travel and the end of the universe. Plus, it features the craziest string theory players you'll ever see! The performers do a great job of telling a story that will resonate with the inner-physicist in all of us. It doesn't take itself too seriously and never feels above the comprehension of a layman "physicist" like myself though there are some pretty heady and lofty concepts dished up for us to digest. I walked out smiling but also thinking and that felt good!... full review

RICHARD ADAMS, The World Socialist Website (to be posted soon) Labeled “a tragic one-act science farce” by its creators, Chris Bell and Joshua Zeller, The God Particle Complex is a cheeky romp through the realm of high energy particle physics. The action is set in the bowels of CERN (Consell Européen pour la Researche Nucléaire) and alongside the seventeen mile tube that constitutes the Large Hadron Collider, The actors, many of them veterans of the highly-acclaimed Actors Gang, bring their commedia dell’arte style to a send-up of vacuous press conferences, the collision of sub-atomic particles (mimed by rival particle physicists with competing theories about the Higgs Boson), scientific competition, the possibilities of wormhole time tra... full review

How can anyone pass up a scientific tragic farce about super colliders and the Higgs Boson played in flat-out wonderful commedia style by Actors Gang veterans? If you know anything at all about wormholes and subatomic physics, this show will smack your sweetspot. If you don't know dick from jane when it comes to the quantum world, you'll still get it. I happened upon this show by accident. Best mistake I've made in a long time. ... full review
VICTORIA WATSON uncertified reviewer June 18, 2012
I so wanted to Love It. But I can't. I love scifi nerd humor as much as the next Battlestar Galactica-Big Bang Theory-Doctor Who fan. But despite some really great actors, this felt like a UCB skit that someone tried to force feed structure to. Sigh. ... full review
