Synopsis

Take a rockin' and whimsical journey into the mind of math whiz Susan Fisher in this off-Broadway Alliance-nominated musical comedy. It's 1954, and 12-year-old Susan is a star math student who wants to get a fresh start at her new junior high school by reinventing herself as a "cool kid." But she soon discovers it won't be easy … especially when an imaginary Albert Einstein starts following her around! While Susan awkwardly plays the part of popular girl, she finds herself dealing with demanding friends she's not sure she wants, boring activities she'd rather not be doing and an annoying twin brother who's stealing her spotlight in the school's illustrious Math League. Plus, that pesky Einstein just won't leave her alone! Is she going crazy? Will she figure out how to really be herself? Hailed by The New York Times as "fresh" and "witty," Dear Albert Einstein is a fun and quirky coming-of-age story about finding your passion and loving who you are, delivered with a tuneful score of pop, jazz, classical and boppin' '50s rock 'n' roll.
