It's Not You, It's The Universe: How To Have Your Cake And Eat It Too And Lose Weight
Levine uses science to deliver trenchant and hilarious commentary on politics, economics, the media, sex, drugs and rock n' roll. Convinced that our picture of the universe (our cosmology) is closely linked with how we picture ourselves in the universe (our ethos), Levine explores the shift from the universe of Newtonian physics, which looks like Nora Desmond in "Sunset Boulevard", to the universe of chaos physics, which looks like Christina Aguilera. Somehow, she makes this sound like a good thing.

Performed as "eLevine.universe" at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles and at the American Place Theater and the 92nd Street Y in New York.

"I have never spent a more entertaining, intellectually arresting and emotionally fulfilling hour in the theater." Norman Lear, Producer


How I learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Free Market
When Emily Levine first found out, per Suze Ormond, that you were supposed to treat your money "as a cherished friend", she was shocked. She had long ago given her money to a business manager and let him make friends with it. Hastening to rectify the situation, Emily Levine quickly read up on economics, then invited her money to lunch. But when the check came, money disappeared. Levine's attempt to track money down – from Wall Street to Washington to Grand Cayman Island – takes her audience on a ride at least as wild as Mr. Toad's and vastly more entertaining.

Performed at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles and at the 92nd Street Y in New York.

"If Albert Einstein came back to earth as a comedian, he'd be Emily Levine…Don't miss this show!" Robin Green and Mitch Burgess, Executive Producers, "The Sopranos"


Common Cent$
Emily Levine's interest in Intellectual Property arose when she found out that one of the properties classified as "intellectual" was Goofy. Delving further, she found a swashbuckling tale, replete with pirates (file-swappers) and privateers (the broadcasters), pitting closed proprietary systems (Microsoft) against open source software (Linux). She also discovered in evolutionary psychology an argument suggesting that our fierce attitudes regarding property may be genetically encoded. Anyone who has ever seen footage of birds claiming and defending territory cannot doubt the existence of this biological imperative. For those who haven't, the dance of the great-crested grebes is soulfully rendered by Emily Levine herself.

Performed at Theatre 40 in Los Angeles and the 92nd Street Y in New York.
