One Night Only! Brain Candy Live, Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Richmond, VA (October 24, 2016) – The presenter of Broadway in Richmond, Jam Theatricals, is thrilled to announce the new live show BRAIN CANDY LIVE!, starring Adam Savage, editor-in-chief of Tested.com and former co-host of the Emmy-nominated Discovery series "MythBusters,” and Michael Stevens, creator of award-winning YouTube Channel “Vsauce”, will debut at Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center for one night only on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 7:30 pm. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, October 28 at 10:00 am.
BRAIN CANDY LIVE! is an outrageous evening of entertainment from two of the most amazing minds of our times. Adam Savage, one of television's most loved personalities, has joined forces with Michael Stevens, one of YouTube's biggest stars. Together, the two are bringing along more than 3 tons of their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that's been described as a cross between TED Talks and the Blue Man Group.
Savage and Stevens can’t wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for audiences to join-in and get their minds messy. Adam and Michael’s BRAIN CANDY LIVE! experience is like a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein.
Ask yourself, “Is it possible to 3D print a human - live onstage?” “Can you slow down the effects of gravity with something we throw away every day?” “What happens if everyone on earth jumps in the air at exactly the same time?” Discover all this and more as Adam and Michael entertainingly answer questions, question answers and talk Mother Nature into doing some things she’s never done before!
The tour will play 40 venues across the United States for a three-month run. This is the first time these two explosive minds bring their version of interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to cities across the US.
About Adam Savage
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website Tested.com, Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He's also a regular at conventions across the country, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention ... and hugs.
About Michael Stevens
Michaels’ passion for learning, science and making curiosity contagious led him to create Vsauce in 2010. The YouTube channel captures attention with fun questions like, “What Color Is A Mirror?” “Can You Count Past Infinity?” and “Why Are Things Creepy?” Now reaching a collective 17 million subscribers with video views in excess of 2 billion, Vsauce has grown into one of the largest educational networks on the web. Last year, it received the Webby for Best Science and Education Network.
