SYNOPSIS
As an adult, Albert Einstein changed our view of the universe. But as a boy, he struggled with the same issues any twelve 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.


DEVELOPMENT HISTORY
Einstein is a Dummy was first seen at the Kennedy Center’s 2004 New Visions/New Voices festival, and went on to premiere at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre in 2005 under the direction of Rosemary Newcott. Selling out in its first run, it was extended twice to keep up with popular demand. Since then it has enjoyed productions at theatres throughout the country, including Chicago Playworks, UNC Charlotte, Oregon Children's Theatre, and Nashville Children's Theatre. A revised and expanded 90 minute, large ensemble version was premiered by an all-student cast at the Norris Center for the Performing Arts in April of 2011, under the direction on Corey Jones and produced by Debbie Martinez.

“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 I've ever seen.” - Matthew S. Grober, Associate Professor of Biology, Georgia State University

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