Einstein Is A Dummy
Maybe nobody thought much of Albert Einstein when he was 12. Maybe the other kids thought he was weird, and the girl next door thought he was a nerd. Maybe he forgot stuff, and maybe he got lost. A lot. Maybe Herr Shloppnoppdinkerdon was right. Maybe Einstein was a dummy. Or maybe, just maybe, he was sorting out the fundamental relationship of space and time to the speed of light. (What did you do today?)
Einstein Is A Dummy is not biographical, and is neither history lesson nor physics class. Rooted in Einstein’s own musings about the application of creative thought to scientific method, it is a joyous celebration of the courage to think differently. Karen Zacarias (one of America’s funniest and most provocative contemporary playwrights), Debbie Wicks LaPuma (composer of Elephant and Piggie: We Are In A Play!), and NCT’s amazing artistic team have created an exhilarating, absurdly original theatrical thrill-ride through the cosmos with young Albert and his amazing Cat. There’s delight for everyone, so hop on board! Please fasten your safety belts, and keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times. We are about to spend 70 glorious minutes inside the greatest mind of the 20th century.
