Synopsis

Large-Cast Version. As an adult, Albert Einstein changed our view of the universe. But as a boy, he struggled with the same issues any 12-year-old might—keeping up with violin lessons, impressing the girl next door and, oh yeah, comprehending the fundamental relationship of space and time to the speed of light, of course. This uplifting play about a fictional day in young Einstein's life confirms that each of us is both ordinary and special. With an engaging, original score, a healthy dose of imagination and the help of a mysterious cat, Einstein Is a Dummy reveals life's atomic possibilities.

Customer Reviews

"I loved the production and was very impressed by how well it captured both the coming-of-age of a 'different' teenager AND the unique scientific insights that led to Einstein's remarkable year of publications … It was the most creative approach to communicating physics that IÕve ever seen."
Review by Matthew S. Grober, Associate Professor of Biology, Georgia State University

Media Reviews

"Young Einstein's geeky streak is reason to rock … Einstein abounds with the energy of its subject matter … The verdict: Sheer energy, musicalized." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
