Einstein! The Longest Running Solo Show in Los Angeles History

This multi-award winning and critically acclaimed show, written and starring Jack Fry, brings Einstein back from beyond, frustrated that no one has heard the real science history behind General Relativity. Albert takes us back to Berlin in 1914 where he is sent sideways in a world crumbling around him due to the Great War, a science establishment that doesn’t believe him, those that do try to wrestle the theory away from. He is being isolated for his pacifist views, has a wife who won’t give him a divorce, faces a huge scientific backlash, anti-Semitism, a 10-year old son fighting for his affections, and finally a nervous breakdown that lay him bed ridden for two whole months. Told with humour, 3D graphics that help give us an insight to his brilliant mind, Albert Einstein comes to life as Jack Fry revitalizes one of the most intriguing icons of all time. It is funny, touching and a true triumph!
