Here he talks about Gioai De Cari's one woman show Truth Values which is about being a math major at MIT, and a woman. Joel actually did a pre-show piece in the Globe last week.
But for all of the fun that I and other journalists have had highlighting De Cari's angle on campus sexism - Larry Summers' unfortunate remarks about women in science drove her to finish the play! News hook! - this is a much more personal show than advertised. Her on-stage persona, at least, seems softer, less bold than that chick up there lolling on the desk. She is reluctant to directly confront the misogyny she encounters at MIT, displacing her anger into a series of increasingly hilarious and inappropriate "fashion experiments" that seem to upset her few female colleagues as much as they distract the men.
Brown also points out that De Cari doesn't do the monologue in the sexy Tina Fey-like glasses.
