This play, which toured nationally to rave reviews, presents the private, personal, and deeply human side of this great genius, the reluctant celebrity who changed forever the way we look at the universe. Variety said: "The importance of the play is the easy way the audience comes to view the complexities of a man who committed his entire life to science...Simms lightens the burden of a one-man show by writing dialogue full of wit, humor, and one-liners...telling, through a string of anecdotes, Einstein's metamorphosis from a bored high school dropout to the winner of the Nobel Prize..." This play has at its heart the terrible anguish Einstein ultimately faced when forced to choose between morality and science.

- "This is a delightful play. Insightful and informative. It is thought-provoking without crossing the line to "preachy." Einstein becomes a real person, who laughs, jokes, hurts and feels. I highly recommend this play!"

- "An extraordinary piece of writing that takes us past the scientist down to the man. Viewers who expect a "two-hour math lesson" are treated to a story of an enigma who makes us laugh and cry."
