FUN FOR ALL AGES!
Fun for all ages! Our only negative is that the show did not go on long enough. Highly recommend!

THE GREATEST SHOW ON ASTO-TURF
Neil DeGrasse Tyson is great. His show is as entertaining and funny as it is informative and educational. It feels more like a friendly conversation that transitions from one topic to another very smoothly. I highly recommend going to see Mr. Tyson live.
from Detroit, Michigan
Highly recommend! Surprisingly fun. You cannot help but hear the wheels turning in his mind. Would definitely go again, and disappointed the meet and greet was sold out. Next time, I will buy earlier!

What a great evening! Very entertaining and fun. If you get a chance to see this particular show, GO. As for some of the negative reviews, here are my answers. 1) Being late. I hesitate to blame Mr. Tyson for tardiness when at 7:30, a significant number of seats were empty. People were still streaming in when the show started. Hardly his fault. 2) The title of the show was An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies. That should have been a clue that it would be lighthearted and not Cosmos.

BELLCO THEATRE - NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON
I was very anxious for this event and disappointed in Neil's tardiness. While the movie information was interesting and fun, I was hoping to learn more from the event last evening. I have enjoyed watching Cosmos on Netflix and look forward to the new series. It would have been nice to have questions and answers from the audience at the end. Two hours was long and the seats were very uncomfortable. Nice socks.

I'll start by saying Dr. Tyson is personable and often times funny. However, my husband and I attended the show in the hopes that we would learn something. What we found was it was superficial conversation about very general topics. Perhaps we misunderstood but seriously, this was a rather juvenile presentation. We found the Q&A's at the end of the show to be more interesting than most of the presentation. With that said, the show started 1/2 hour late, which was rude. Dr. Tyson gave an explanation that he'd been traveling the world – that's great for you and I'm sure the majority were duly impressed. However, you had an auditorium full of people who paid for tickets to your show, who were not shown the respect they deserved.

Tyson blind sided us by out of nowhere starts talking about 9/11. This did not fit into the rest of the show. Using photos and videos of people jumping out of buildings etc was ethically questionable at least. The message from Tyson’s pictures was look at how close I was. His comments about the physics of this tragedy were cold. I remember that day vividly and lost colleagues. To get a 57 year old man sobbing and weeping in his chair and have to leave to throw up in a performance is not ok. Shame on you Tyson. To use one of this country’s days in history to sell your book is terrible. Self promotion at the expense of respect for the dead is Inexcusable. My copy of the book handed to me is in the trash can. Shame on you. Shame shame shame
