BWW JR: Dear Albert Einstein
On May 3, Making Books Sing will present DEAR ALBERT EINSTEIN, a new musical that tells the story of Albert Einstein helping a 12-year old girl navigate middle school and mean girls.
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.
