October 23 and 24, 2023 Staged Reading
Why was Nikola Tesla nearly written out of history? Who was his mistress? What secrets of his did a famous palm reader reveal? What was his obsession with pigeons? Why did one of the world's greatest geniuses die penniless?
The play probes into the brilliant and undaunted psyche of this Serbian-American inventor who made massive breakthroughs in the transmission of electric power, exposing his human vulnerability through the eyes of the mostly-overlooked women who loved him. Scenes and songs range from hilarious to heart breaking, malicious to transcendent, humiliating to triumphant. Tesla's Mistress is a show about the endless bounty of creation and love revealed in strange and unexpected ways.
You can help intensify the energy! Our goal is to raise $10,000 for a reading with all of the songs on October 23rd & 24th, 2023 in the Twin Cities, MN
Donations will be used for honorariums for the cast, a technician, director, orchestral arrangements, rehearsal & performance space, publicity, etc.
This is the next step in achieving the ultimate goal of a fully-staged elaborate production. Any amount is precious and welcome!
