My appearance as Adam Smith

03.17.15

This Sunday, March 22 and this Monday, March 23, I’ll be appearing at New York City’s HERE Arts Center as Adam Smith as part of Money Lab. Money Lab is an economic vaudeville–a set of rotating acts related to economics, art and theater. Tickets are $20 with a $5-$10 buy-in that gives you tokens to use for the interactive part of the evening. Money Lab runs March 20 through April 11. My shows are only those two days, though. First week (which includes my shows), use the code UTC61 and get tickets for $10.

My performances are Sunday at 2 pm and 7 pm, Monday at 7 pm. (You can find out about the rest of the Money Lab performances, here.) I’ll be talking about Smith’s insights into harmony and reciting an original poem on emergent order. World premiere. Oh, the excitement. Should be fun, actually. My one-man act is 5-10 minutes. There are three other acts at each performance and some interactive stuff as well. Hope to see you there.

The other acts are:
