Students in Ma’ayanot’s 12th grade physics classes, accompanied by Gila Stein, Gillian Cofnas and Aryeh Tiefenbrunn, bundled up against the cold on December 27, and headed to Manhattan for a matinee performance of “That Physics Show.” Written and performed by David Maiullo, the show won the 2016 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience.
