This Pi day, join us for a celebration of Einstein! In a special collaboration between Astronomy On Tap with No.11 Productions and their original production of the play, Friends Call Me Albert, we’ll explore the science and life of Albert Einstein’s. Why Pi Day? Cause is also would have been Einstein’s 139th birthday!

Three scenes from the play will be teamed up with Astronomy on Tap speakers:
Dr. Kelly Reidy - rogue physicist
Dr. Matt Stanley - NYU Gallatin professor of the history of science
Dr. Saavik Ford - CUNY/AMNH Astrophysicist
Drew Rosen - CUNY Astronomy PhD student

Friends Call Me Albert is written by Zachary William Desmond
Directed by Ryan Emmons
Music by Enrico de Trizio
Featuring Steven Conroy, Julie Congress and Alison Novelli
Puppets by Jen Neads
Set/Lighting Design by Ryan Hauenstein

Doors at 7pm, show starts at 8pm, and SPECIAL EINSTEIN-THEMED PRIZES at 10pm donated by the The Unemployed Philosophers Guild!
Dr. Kelly Reidy
KELLY REIDY is an adjunct professor at Pratt Institute and a rogue researcher of theoretical condensed matter physics. She leads offbeat tours at the American Museum of Natural History with Museum Hack and talks to unsuspecting strangers about science as a collaborator with Guerilla Science. In her spare time, Kelly writes and performs ukulele songs about, among other things, love and mathematics.
