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 Physicist conjures a Mother Time figure to assist discovery of his renowned epiphany.Great set with live music,song,choreo, and projections.
Don't see it if The Brain only clicks when he's snoozing in dreamscape; suggesting the connection to his theory to bend time was one only to meet her.
See it if Nice music, Alexandra Silber sings well and is perfect in the part. Einstein good too. 90 minutes no intermission
Don't see it if You want a coherent musical. Some songs were moving despite confusing story.
See it if you like an unusual musical about a genius with strange dreams. Nice singing, some good songs. I liked the staging.
Don't see it if you don't like the premise of a genius like Einstein getting all his ideas from dreams. This is a clever show but the premise is weird.
See it if like myself, you usually love everything Einstein; likeable actors, good voices, good band; good potential but under developed.
Don't see it if All we learn is that Einstein is fixated on the theory of relativity but for anything to progress he has to be asleep. Needs some depth.
See it if want 2 support musical work in progress, great visuals & masterful singing are enough, like idea of scientist celebrity portrayed in song
Don't see it if chamber musical is not your thing, need more depth 2 an investigation of theory of relativity & human relationship with time & other humans
See it if You are a musical theatre completionist and like to see all new musicals. You want to support Prospect Theater Company.
Don't see it if You are looking for a musical that is ready for an audience. It feels more like a hastily devised piece than a true musical.
See it if you are a fan of the novel that the musical is based on.
Don't see it if you need a strong score, book, and direction...the actors, however, manage to make sense of a very weak premise.
See it if You are interested in Einstein and are open to an artistic interpretation of his life. The set and the company are excellent.
Don't see it if You do not care for new musicals that need fine tuning and better songs.
See it if you would like to see the romantic side of Einstein - you like small ensemble musicals - you aren't afraid of a (very) little bit of math.
Don't see it if you are easily confused - you want something bigger or with lots of dancing - you read the book and didn't like it.
See it if You enjoy musical theater that makes you think. Excellent performances, direction and set.
Don't see it if The show has some definite high points, but as a whole it doesn't really gel. The characters never really come alive.
See it if you like musicals with an unusual story, terrific book, music and lyrics, talented singers and musicians that's intelligent and funny.
Don't see it if you don't like musicals. You can always read the book!
See it if you enjoy unusual topics put to music. Very interesting set design and use of a small stage. The cast does a good job with their many roles.
Don't see it if you are looking for a classic Broadway show with big numbers and dancers & staging.
See it if A sweet little show weaving in and out Einstein's life and his dreams.
Don't see it if It's a very small production. If you are looking for something big and flashy this isn't it.
See it if You like meta physics more than physics. The songs are cute, but not much more.
Don't see it if You really like Einstein's theories and would be put off by the claim that it all came from a dream. I had the same problem with the book.
See it if you are interested in smart, fun theater which makes you lean in and connect the dots, and enjoy legit musical theater songs and performance
Don't see it if you are looking for a more traditional love story, or something more in the documentary vein.
See it if You have any interest in how Einstein's mind worked! The music is enchanting and the design/ production is one of the best I've ever seen.
Don't see it if It's thought provoking and character driven,.less plot oriented. Also, the music is beautiful but not in a traditional musical theater way.
See it if You enjoy how complex concepts can be acted out and visualized for an audience -- ingenious, v entertaining, and worked on every level.
Don't see it if You have a fixed notion of how scientists do what they do - this show humanizes them in every way.
