Hi, SCSC members!
My name is Gia (replete with website: http://www.giamora.com), and I volunteer on the SCSC board helping Dr. Black and Dr. Hart fulfill the organization's mission of "Bringing Together Science, Art, Culture, and Life."
Professionally, I’m not a scientist--I'm an actor, singer and writer--but I am a science literacy advocate and a wannabe theoretical physicist. My one-woman show EINSTEIN'S GIRL (http://www.einsteinsgirl.com) has played to sold out audiences on both coasts, and I'm playing in LA this weekend. I'd love for you to join me! RSVP http://www.meetup.com/SoCal-Science-Cafe/events/117038262/ and reserve your seats by phone: 323.467.7444.
About the show...
EINSTEIN'S GIRL explores the "science of love... theoretically speaking." It's one-third stand-up comedy, one-third old school cabaret, and one-third theoretical physics, adding up to a unique and thought provoking evening of music and story.
What the critics say...
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.” Broadway World marveled, "Ms. Mora managed the unthinkable here - putting a fresh spin on the subject of love. Melding intellectual thoughts on topics as varied as black holes and supercomputing and devilishly funny commentary on the intersection between American obsession with technology and the search for love with sultry, jazz-infused vocals." "A joy from start to finish," Cabaret Scenes Magazine lauds Mora and says the show "marks the beginning of stardust coalescing into a star."
A little about me...
I’m best known for are my original music and storytelling ,and I’ve headlined at venues such as Don’t Tell Mama, The Gardenia, Bethesda Blues & Jazz, Blues Alley, An Die Musik, and Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. I am also big time into jazz and I often appear with my father, Rick Chinisci. I have degrees with honors from both the University of Colorado and University of Pisa (that’s right--the city with the Leaning Tower)! When I am not working, I love blogging about politics and science, playing crosswords, and snuggling with Spanky and Haas, my two adopted kitties.
I would be happy to stick around afterwards and say hi to any SoCal Science Café members that care to stick around after the show is over! Spread the word, and see you at Gardenia this weekend!
