For Gia Mora, 'Einstein' is about the science of love

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

You've heard of "Bill Nye, The Science Guy" and his educational television show.

Gia Mora is "The Science Gal," but not of television fame (not yet, that is), but of the stage, and more in the entertainment realm than education, although there is that.

Mora's "Einstein's Girl," 7 p.m. Oct. 18, State Theatre Cabaret in the Acopian Ballroom, 7 p.m. Oct. 18, State Theatre for the Arts, 453 Northampton St., Easton, brings the, ahem, elements of entertainment and education together -- in a supercollider of comedy.

Theater Review: 'Spring Awakening' no child's play at Civic

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Youthful exuberance lights up the stage in the Civic Theatre of Allentown production of "Spring Awakening," continuing through Oct. 27.

Civic Artistic Director William Sanders directs a cast of college and high school all-stars in what is a rock opera of tragic proportions and emotional triumph.

The on-stage, seven-piece orchestra, conducted by Music Director Justin Brehm, doesn't overpower excellent solo vocals and choral work.
