Cosmic Cabaret Showers CSUS

Physicist Lynda Williams brings her world-famous "Cosmic Cabaret" science lecture to California State University, Sacramento at 4 p.m., Thursday, April 19. The event will be in the University Union Hinde Auditorium.

Williams' cabaret-style physics lectures have attracted a flurry of media attention from the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune and the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to People Magazine, "Williams puts the fizz back in physics." The Los Angeles Time wrote, "Every scientist dreams of seducing people with the beauty and wonder of the natural world. But few take it as far as Williams, the Physics Chanteuse, who puts her microphone where her mouth is."

Williams, a physics and astronomy professor at San Francisco State University and a graduate of CSUS, writes original science media and musicals productions. She has performed for professional science organizations including the American Physics Society and the American Astronomical Society. She also produces a show at the San Francisco Planetarium Museum.

William's co-owns Science Entertainment with her sister, Bergen Williams, a screenplay writer, actress and director. Together the Williams sisters have produced a dozen stage and media projects with scientific themes. Their mission is to produce science media and products that are accessible, educational and entertaining.
