Making Books Sing to Stage DEAR ALBERT EINSTEIN, 5/3-18
DEAR ALBERT EINSTEIN, with Music by Russ Kaplan, Lyrics by Sara Wordsworth and Book by Russ Kaplan & Sara Wordsworth, will be directed by Josh Penzell and runs May 3 - 18, 2014.
Set in 1954, DEAR ALBERT EINSTEIN tells the story of Susan, a 12-year-old star math student who, when starting junior high, struggles between the desire to be herself and the pressure to be like all of the other girls in her class. Her admiration for Einstein, who periodically pops up in her imagination, complicates and eventually helps her along her journey. The musical combines early rock-n-roll, swing, and classical music. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
May 10 will be the DEAR ALBERT EINSTEIN benefit, featuring performance, refreshments and a cool science presentation by Mad Science. Tickets: $50 Regular / $75 Premium.
The show's regular run plays Wednesdays 10:30am; Thursdays and Fridays 10:30am & 7pm; Saturdays 2pm & 7pm; and Sundays 2pm at Theater 3, 311 W. 43rd St. (at 8th Ave), 3rd Fl., New York, NY 10036. #EINSTEINBDAY Discount Tickets: $20 General Seating, $35 Premium Seating.
