I've attended multiple lectures from the Brilliant Lecture Series, all of which have definitely been up to par. While Stephen Hawking caused a stir, it happens! I bought tickets to the Barry Manilow concert and surprise! It was canceled, because well, life happens. I think while everyone is so ramped up trying to create a "witch hunt" and burn someone at the stake, they are a non-profit that still put on a show, and from my personal experience, a pretty good one! People forget that they took their time, money and energy to fix this situation (even offered credit for a future production) and the show was NOT canceled! Yes, it was altered, but its a learning experience for them, i am sure. The video they showed was awesome, entertaining and hilarious, who knew Professor Hawking had such a funny bone! After the show, i heard many other patrons talk about how they were glad they decided to attend the production, and i think if you are truly a Stephen Hawking fan, you would want to attend to support him, not just to say you were in the same room as him...which is kind of creepy.

I applaud Brilliant Lectures for pulling themselves up by their boot straps and marching on to try and create more programs, which i am sure is time consuming while trying to put out so many fires at the same time.
