SAN FRANCISCO, CA--April 22, 1999--Professor by day, performer by night, Lynda Williams blends science and song in her musical show, Cosmic Cabaret. The revue, which also features Joe Gizmo and other science entertainers, returns to San Francisco State University’s Planetarium for two performances, May 7 and 8 at 8:00 p.m.
Williams, a physics instructor at SFSU, dons cabaret attire to become the Physics Chanteuse. She performs both original songs and popular tunes adapted with lyrics about the wonders of the universe, from the Big Bang to DNA. Her unique mix of science and entertainment has attracted attention from The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and national television and radio programs. People Magazine says, "Williams puts the fizz back in physics."
The 90-minute show is appropriate for all audiences. A $10 donation at the door supports the production of more traditional planetarium shows. Afterward, weather permitting, the observatory atop Thornton Hall will be open for star viewing. The planetarium is located in room 422 on the 4th floor of Thornton Hall, in the northeast corner of the SFSU campus. Space is limited; for reservations call (415) 576-0555.
