Based on the bestselling novel by Alan Lightman, this elegant new musical bridges imagined and real worlds, and unlocks the passionate intellect of one of the 20th century’s greatest thinkers. More…
From the show:
The year is 1905. A young and uncertain Albert Einstein dares to envision new worlds beyond the limits of classical physics. Drawn deeply into his dreams, he is guided by a mysterious woman whose elusive identity awakens his full genius.
See it if Didn’t work at all starting with the disastrous sets and lighting. Unmemorable score, poor staging. And I was SO rooting for this.
Don't see it if I could watch the lit up backstage area for 2/3 of the show. No changes can save this.
See it if you are curios about Einstein and his theories which the play makes entertainingly accessible.
Don't see it if you cannot let your imagination soar. This is not a linear work. The structure suits the subject of relativity.
See it if you like your musicals to be on the level of a high-school production. This one has a very poorly written book and a forgettable score.
Don't see it if you expect a great score and some outstanding performances. You won't find them here.
See it if You’re interested in a good idea that’s been overworked. Tiresome book with rhyming, banal lyrics. Game cast & band, nice set.
Don't see it if You enjoyed the original novel. The flights of fancy make little sense & very little of Einstein is revealed.
See it if you are interested in Albert Einstein, the theory of relativity, period pieces, mediocre music, and romance.
Don't see it if you want a coherent show. This is a confusing production with a poorly written book, forgettable songs, and mediocre performances.
See it if you like musicals, can enjoy 90 minutes w/o intermission, don't mind abstract ideas & like science.
Don't see it if you prefer opera to musicals or would not like to see Einstein at various points in time, not chronologically ordered. It's on his dreams.
See it if Lovely performance, all actors are good (and their voices), quick costumes change and perfect work of orchestra and lighting designers
Don't see it if 95 minutes,no intermission.Think that life of Albert Einstein and creation of Theory of Relativity must be told only by boring scientists
See it if All things Einstein, fact or fiction, intrigue. The play missed the T of R 100th anniversary hoopla, or did it? For after all, what is time?
Don't see it if Looking for a blockbuster number. Music good, but nothing special. One of main characters singing hard to understand. Einstein, so what.
See it if a trippy dream-like exploration of time and its various interpretations with some nice musical numbers and mostly great talent
Don't see it if an overall underwhelming and amateurish score, you actually expect to learn much about Einstein or his theories
See it if What an intelligent show to be able to relate between the abstract physical theories and the human life experiences. It’s an educational one
Don't see it if If the background videos and modern choreography to tell the story is too mumbo jumbo for you.
See it if you like modern musicals with excellent singing, like unusual amazing technical effects, can suspend disbelief as regards the story line.
Don't see it if you want serious theater, with a clear plot line, have no interest in Einstein's Theory of Relativity, didnt like the book Einstein's Dreams
See it if You like musicals and have any interest in modern science, or in Einstein the man. You like Rod Sterling’s “Twilight Zone” programs.
Don't see it if You don’t know who Einstein is, as this requires at least some knowledge of Einstein’s notoriety and achievements.
See it if you have a couple of hours to kill some night. It's not that long, though it may feel that way. It has two lovely songs and a striking set.
Don't see it if you like plots, characters, and dramatic conflict. To have dreams, Einstein sleeps a lot. For a main character, it feels like a fatal flaw.
See it if you like legit singing, exploration of intelligent subjects & physics, original ideas and creative lighting/staging concepts.
Don't see it if Don't see if if you don't feel like thinking.
See it if You like intelligent musicals that make you think and feel. The score is beautiful, and every member of the cast is terrific.
Don't see it if If you want an "easy" show. There's a lot going on here but so worth it.
See it if You are interested in something thought provoking and non-linear. If you love great singing, witty writing and lovely music
Don't see it if You are looking for something traditional and easy.
See it if you like a feast for the senses! The score is stunning, sung by beautiful voices, and the show is also a visual stunner.
Don't see it if You only like remakes of movies or by-the-numbers jukebox musicals. It's unique and intelligent. Refreshing-- an ambitious show with heart.
