Written by the students and staff of the 2012 Lovewell Teen Session 2 workshop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Filmed live at the Performance Theatre, NSU, on June 29th 2012.
At the turn of the century, two inventors battle to become the king of the electric age: one, the legendary Thomas Edison, the other, the largely forgotten Nikola Tesla. The Alternate: A Musical Tale of Nikola Tesla tells the fascinating and largely unknown story of an immigrant with a brilliant and unusual mind, and his big dreams of perfecting the energy that powers our world. Set against the backdrop of the World’s Fair of 1893, The Alternate details the rise and fall of a brilliant man who sacrificed everything to change our world and illuminates the legacy he left behind.
