EUREKA!  
Sara is your typical teenager  good student, stellar athlete but lately, she's been struggling with her math classes. On the eve of her big test, she's visited by some of the luminaries of the mathematical world, including Albert Einstein, Blaise Pascal, Lady Ada Lovelace and Pythagoras. Together, these mathematical luminaries show her how math is part of the world. They explore the Pythagorean Theorem, number theory, order of operations, probability, prime numbers, the Fibonacci sequence, Pascal's triangle, the origins of the calculator and the computer, precalculus, and more. They demonstrate the relationships between pineapples, pinecones, and the golden ratio, and help spark an interest in mathematics as the code that defines the universe. This show is now accepting reservations. Please visit our schedule page for performance dates and locations. Click here to check out an article in The Boston Globe about Eureka! Here is a sneak peek at the script for EUREKA!: SARA I'm not a bad student! I just don’t see how understanding theorems and formulas can help me in real life. I don’t care who you are, you’re not going to convince me that I’m ever going to use the quadratic equation to do anything but pass math tests! EINSTEIN Ah, but that’s just it! Of course you’re losing interest in math it’s just this series of memorizations and regurgitations for you. SARA That’s exactly what it is! You stay up cramming, and hope you remember enough to pass the test the next morning. EINSTEIN But mathematics is so much more than that! Mathematics is the language of movement, the code that can explain the universe! You can use it to understand almost anything from the paths of the stars to this little…stick of gum you listen to music with. SARA That’s my shuffle. EINSTEIN Look I’m here. I’m not going away. I have traveled across the void, through the gulf of the spacetime continuum to help you with your math, so that’s what I’m going to do. SARA You came back from the dead to help me with my math homework? EINSTEIN You’re lucky it was my turn on the roster! So, how can I be of service? EUREKA! was written by Shaun WainwrightBranigan.
