At the center of this clash, Tesla famously argued electricity should be given to the masses at no cost, no matter their class or creed, while Edison wanted to capitalize on the popularity of the world’s growing need to power their homes and lives into the future. This new and original production follows two of history’s greatest genius inventors as they clash over their disparate. 18+ with children 12+ allowed with adult.
