Science! The Musical

February 23, 2018
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Center for Science and Society, 513 Fayerweather Hall, 1180 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10027

Science! The Musical is a new musical about life in the lab written by Presidential Scholar in Society and Neuroscience Andrew Goldman and directed by Jenna Hoffman. Follow the story of Janice, a first-year Ph.D. student, who has just had her first paper accepted to an academic conference. The only problem is, she hasn’t written the paper yet! In the few short weeks before the conference, Janice must learn to do interdisciplinary science. Will she publish, or will she perish!?

Andrew Goldman (Writer) joined the inaugural Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience class after receiving his Ph.D. in Cognition of Musical Improvisation from the University of Cambridge. His research explores the subtle effects of improvisation in music and daily life. A pianist since the age of five, Andrew has extensive classical musical training.

Jenna Hoffman (Director) is a Chicago native and proud graduate of New York University. She is thrilled to be working with Andrew and the Center for Science and Society on this project! Recent New York directing credits include JesusVioletHedda GablerAlkestis, and Jack or the Submission. Currently, Jenna is working on her upcoming show Hekabe.

Tickets are required and can be purchased at the Brown Paper Tickets website. Student tickets are $10 and general audience tickets cost $15.
