 What Mr. Maiullo does onstage is still extremely cool, and not just because the temperature of liquid nitrogen is more than 300 degrees below zero. 

 “That Physics Show” is like having your really hip uncle teach science class for a day. You may not completely master the lesson, but you’ll love the lab.

The most intriguing moments in “That Physics Show,” however, are when Mr. Maiullo makes the invisible visible. We can’t see sound waves, but using a device called a flame tube, and a recording of Frank Sinatra singing “New York, New York,” he translates their movement into a fiery pattern. 

Audiences are saying...

"At first glance, theater and physics might seem an unlikely combination, but Rutgers University physics demonstrator Dave Maiullo brings the complex laws of physics to life on stage in a way that not only had us at the edge of our seats but also allowed us to grasp the how and why behind each mind-blowing experiment presented onstage.  Maiullo's dynamic and engaging personality, coupled with his ability to explain things in plain English, allows him to create a one-man force field, the gravitational pull of which draws the audience in with rapt attention."

"Really fun for kids and adults alike. We all learned so much and had a blast while doing so. My kids came out motivated and inspired to pursue science."

"This was a wonderful, entertaining and fascinating look at certain laws of physics that we experience with everyday life. I don't want to spoil any of the surprises, by giving details, but let's just say that you won't likely look at a ping pong ball quite the same way ever again! Everyone in our group from middle-aged me to our 11-year-old daughter loved it."
