In the summer of 2018 Norbut Yetso performed at The Hollywood Fringe in The Universe 101!  "Stone and Godfrey (who are credited as the piece’s creators, producers and directors) have crafted a delightful, quirky vignette that is full of daffy, Monty Python-like absurdity wrapped around a Douglas Adams-like comic riff on the themes of quantum physics and magic.  Indeed, their artful melding of magic and narrative is almost a trick itself." This show is available for touring and special events.
