A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, David Auburn's drama Proof establishes how difficult it is to prove sanity, love, and faith. After discovering a potentially groundbreaking mathematical proof in her deceased father's notebook, a young woman questions how much of his genius, and madness, she has inherited. The show contains adult language, so parents bringing young ones are encouraged to stuff their kids’ ears with peanut butter before the show.
Though their tanning bed's bulbs are designed to last for up to 800 hours, the staff at The Equator replaces them after only 500–700 hours of use to ensure optimal UVB output. This is just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience—another is the way in which they meticulously clean each tanning bed before and after each session. Aside from traditional UV tanning and sunless Mystic Tan offerings, they shrink unwanted bodily bulges with curve-contouring infrared-heat wraps. Infrared light goes to work, heating the subcutaneous layer of skin to sweep away unnecessary cellular deposits. Treatments burn through up to 1,400 calories an hour, dwarfing the results of other activities such as marathon running's 1,186 calories or marathon staring contest's two calories.

The Tanning Factory preps guests for sunny jaunts on the beach with tanning beds, spray tans, and waxing services, performed by a licensed aesthetician.

Avanti offers a cornucopia of facial services, including the half-hour medical mini facial, which cleanses, steams, and massages your skull-sheath before applying a therapeutic mask tailored to your skin type. The treatment costs $75 by itself, but only $45 if you combine it with another service such as the microdermabrasion ($125), a skin-freshening technique that gently sandblasts the skin with tiny crystals before sucking up the fallen enemy cells with a vacuum. A few microdermabrasion treatments will help facial skin recover from the sun's savage Pesci-like pummeling—staving off the effects of aging in the process by removing fine lines and unwanted pigmentation.
