About the Show
This play 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.
