Physics of Love
“The Physics of Love” is a romantic comedy with themes from science’s Universe Story. In this multi-character one-woman show, “Lisa” is a science teacher who revels in her geekiness, seeing everything in her life through the lens of science – from her family’s homophobia, to the chaos of her 7th grade class to her bumpy search for love. She is surrounded with quirky characters, including students, many bad dates and finally, The Right One. But will she be able to give love a chance? Filled with humor and intelligence, this show will delight and inspire you!
Powerhouse performer Jennifer Joy Pawlitschek has written and performs a multimedia piece involving quantum physics… Not only is Ms. Pawlitschek strikingly beautiful in her tall bearing, she’s highly articulate and bright, and puts on a captivating show.

The science aspect played beautifully into the love story and I loved that it was not boom! Happily ever after. It was, ‘let’s try this again.’ Jennifer is amazing!
“The Physics of Love” is a hit! It’s magic!
Lisa’s lovemaking scene is one of the best that I’ve seen in which everyone keeps her clothing on. The rich traditions of oral interpretation-prose, people, poetry-vocally make fluid the movements, sounds, nuances and satisfaction of lovemaking, as well as the limerance of the morning after. The performance is luminous… Lisa’s revelations after the Fight begin the phoenix cycle of smoldering, combustion, immolation and ultimately the reinvention and rebirth of an even better relationship. This takes this one-woman show beyond the ordinary…
There is a striking use of slides, drawings, background and light on the screen behind the live performance, the reason for its existence. Once the performance began, I was no longer aware of the flickering tea light on my table or of the others around me. Pawlitschek integrates the particular aspects of physics, the interpretation, the operation of the laws of nature on psyches and personalities as seamlessly as one line of poetry leads into the next.
