Inspired by the life of physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman, Arthur Giron's wide-ranging play takes on an epic sweep. Its scope covers most of Feynman's life, but the many characters and the complex sound design never sacrifice clarity. The play shows us snapshots of Feynman's youth, his loves and friendships, his involvement with the Manhattan Project, his expertise at lock-picking, and his role as an investigator of the space shuttle CHALLENGER explosion. Though the play’s impressive breadth may sacrifice some depth, the overall effect is satisfying—that of a compelling miniseries for the ear that also makes science exciting. Alfred Molina's charismatic performance as Feynman and the leaps in setting and time showcase the medium of audio drama. G.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
