The Elektra is an Off Broadway theater that shows little snippets of live theater that can be explained as Off Off Broadway shows. They are short fun little experiences.

This play really wasn't worth it. We didn't find it very funny, perhaps you need to be local to enjoy it. We are huge Harry Potter fans and we felt it just trivialized a really good story. The theatre was freezing cold, we had to...More

This play was very much "off-Broadway" as it appeared very low-budget and somewhat more like a high school performance made up of a cast of friends just having a good time, than a professional performance, but I still laughed and had a good time. However,...More

As a Hunger Games fan I had to see this parody. The show was a lot of fun, the bar reasonably priced. The play was interactive with Twitter and glow sticks so it's different on multiple viewings. I really had a good time.

Fast moving and fun. Bonus that you even learn from it. Great for all ages. Audience participation. Seems like a magic show but explains how these things can actually happen.

We saw "That Physics Show" at the Elektra Theater today. The show was great. It was about 1hr 40minutes long, but we hardly noticed the time passing. The show consisted of a number of funny and interesting demonstrations of the laws of physics in action....More

This is considered an off Broadway show. My wife is a school teacher and said they have such science shows available for free. Thought show was pitched to grade school kids but priced for adults. Would not recommend for adults looking for shows while in...More

I bought groupon tickets for That Physics Show for my two daughters, 5 and 7. The Elektra Theatre is on the second floor of an old building that was clearly not intended to be a theatre when it was built. The dark stairs and corridors...More
