Pi Day PrincetonThe Princeton Theatre Experiment, in collaboration with the Arts Council of Princeton, on Saturday, March 9, is presenting a comedy mashup featuring several Princeton faculty. The event, called “An Evening of Physico-Mathematica-Logical Music and Comedy,” is a warm up to the town of Princeton’s annual Pi Day, a celebration of geekdom that occurs on the anniversary of the birthday longtime Princeton resident Albert Einstein. That date is March 14, or 3.14, the equivalent of pi, a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
The show will feature “Go-go boot jazz” bassist Wilbo Wright, saxophone/synth wizard Eric Haltmeier and Box Project guitarist Jeff Nathanson (whose day job is as director of the Princeton Arts Council) along with Princeton faculty members Bonnie Bassler, Howard Stone, and Ned Wingreen.  Concert pianist and former Institute for Advanced Study artist-in-residence Robert Taub will introduce and perform a Milton Babbitt piece as part of the evening’s offerings.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Arts Council. General admission tickets are $5; $3.14 for students and seniors.
