(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- 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" brings its mind-blowing show to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00pm. Tickets range from $49-$150.
Adam Savage and Michael Stevens have joined forces to bring this one of a kind interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to cities across the U.S. They're master explainers, bringing along their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that literally has audiences shouting "more" after their favorites. Audiences are engaged and enthusiastic test subjects and participants as they spend two hours laughing, learning and exploring during a theatrical experience like no other.
Savage and Stevens literally can't wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for each new audience. They're inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. Adam and Michael's BRAIN CANDY LIVE! experience is like a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein.
Smart is the new superpower and two of this planet's most entertaining everyday heroes are coming to your town to rescue you and your family from boredom. Join them as they use their secret recipe of fun, surprise, excitement (and just a pinch of danger) to cook-up and deliver an explosive batch of magical Brain Candy to every mind in the audience.
