Gia Mora to Bring EINSTEIN'S GIRL to Metropolitan Room, 10/12
After sold show out performances in LA and DC, nationally recognized actor and vocalist Gia Mora will perform her critically acclaimed solo show Einstein's Girl at the famed Metropolitan Room. The show will play for one night only on Saturday, October 12 at 9:30pm. Metropolitan Room is located at 34 West 22nd Street in New York City.
Einstein's Girl explores the "science of love... theoretically speaking." Mora turns her signature wit and intellectual prowess on an unlikely pair of human languages: love and mathematics. In her hilarious show, she investigates interpersonal relations in the digital age through song and story. Mora welcomes composer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Barnett on piano.
Mora comes to New York on the heels of her CD release, Einstein's Girl, The Album, on Modern Songbook Records at Tony award-winning Signature Theatre on September 20th and her TED Talk debut in Ashburn, Virginia, on September 28th.
Mora brings a twenty-first century twist to the art of cabaret, combining original music, standards, stand-up comedy and a crash course in cutting edge science. "I've always loved the intersection of art and science," muses Mora. "This new show aims to tear down fears that mathematics is only for an elite group of academics. Physics is all around us, and learning while laughing makes it all the more memorable."
Gia Mora is a triple-threat performer and writer. Past solo performances include headlining at Don't Tell Mama in New York; The Gardenia and House of Blues in Los Angeles; Bethesda Blues & Jazz and Blues Alley in Washington, DC; and Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret in Denver.
