Wiles, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Mathematics, is the subject of a new musical that opens in New York City on Nov. 21
Wiles is widely celebrated for his proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The musical by Joanne Sydney Lessner and Joshua Rosenblum is titled "Fermat's Last Tango." A promotional piece describes the musical as "a whimsical and provocative look at the true story of the Princeton professor who took on the world's most notorious math problem, and got more than he bargained for."
Performances will be staged Tuesday through Sunday from Nov. 21 to Dec. 30 at the York Theater in New York.
