Celebrating 100 years of Relativity!
E  I  N  S  T  E  I  N  !
 
 

Einstein comes back from the beyond.  Upset with the way his image has been cheapened and vowing to set the record straight, he tells us the remarkable and sometimes harrowing story behind relativity and his struggles as a father. 

It’s Berlin 1914, Albert Einstein awaits news from an eclipse expedition that will prove his Theory of General Relativity.  But Einstein is sent sideways in a world crumbling around him due to The Great War, colleagues stealing his theories, being isolated for his pacifist views, a wife who won’t give him a divorce, h
is failing health, a huge scientific backlash, anti-Semitism, thoughts of suicide, his own self destructive genius and a young son fighting for his father’s affections.

Meanwhile he comes up with a theory that changed the way we live our lives today. This is the dramatic true story that ushered in our modern technological age, and certainly the story that made his hair “crazy” and prematurely aged him.


Based on the recent release of 15,000 documents about this curious man, Jack Fry breathes life into one of the most intriguing icons of all time.

Jack Fry’s new solo show Einstein! explores Einstein’s earlier years in Berlin as he struggles to prove this theory of relativity and prove his relativity as a father. Based on new information recently released, this play highlights the trials we all face as individuals in a world that at times doesn’t want us to succeed...

When other solo artists present important historical figures from our past, as enjoyable as these shows are, they usually talk about their accomplishments in the past tense-- making them dramatic monologues from a singular voice with limited points of view.


Mr. Fry uses many perspectives, fleshes out characters and story, creating fully realized scenes as dramatic moments unfold and blossom on stage.  As audience members, we relive these wonderful points-in-time, making us witnesses to history as these remarkable figures of our past might have experienced them themselves. 


Although, the traditional framework for the historic solo show is admirable. Mr. Fry takes a bold, effective and innovative approach putting the audience member in the roller coster ride next to Einstein in a way that few historical solo shows have done in the past.
