Improbable Research Cabaret 2009

Central Square Theater

If the thought of blowing tax dollars on grizzly-bear DNA was enough to horrify John McCain, his irritable ticker would no doubt explode were he to attend the Improbable Research Cabaret. One of the many nerdy delights on tap for the Cambridge Science Festival, the IRC wrangles a gaggle of Ig Nobel Prize winners to defend such dubious studies as the prophylactic effects of Coca-Cola, the human aversion to nails on a chalkboard, and the physics behind wrinkly sheets. Test-tubular bliss awaits at the Central Square Theater, 450 Mass Ave, Cambridge | 3 pm | $35; $20 for students | 617.576.9278 x 208 or http://www.centralsquaretheater.org
