EINSTEIN'S GIRL Plays Don't Tell Mama, 4/19
Direct from her smash hit performance in DC where Broadway World raved, "Triple threat theatrical talent Gia Mora managed the unthinkable--melding intellectual thoughts with devilishly funny commentary and the search for love with sultry, jazz-infused vocals," nationally recognized actor and vocalist Gia Mora announces the New York premiere of her, Einstein's Girl. The show will play for one night only on Friday, April 19, at 7pm at Don't Tell Mama on Restaurant Row in Manhattan. Don't Tell Mama is located at 343 W. 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues.
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. Composer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Barnett will accompany Mora on piano.
Jennifer Ouelette of Scientific American's Cocktail Party Physics raved of the show's debut, "The Divine Miz Mora's bubbly energy was on full display, along with her impressive four-octave range and an unapologetic sex appeal...a 'wanna-be theoretical physicist.' With a killer set of pipes."
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."
