John Bolton, Peter Buchi, Gregg Edelman, John Treacy Egan, Alison Fraser, Maya Goldman, Amy Justman, Joanne Lessner, and Kate Shindle will participate in a benefit concert of the musical Einstein's Dreams, to be presented at Symphony Space February 23 at 7:30 pm. Jen Bender will direct, with musical direction by David Loud.

The work is based on Alan Lightman's best-selling novel, and features a book by Joanne Sydney Lessner, music by Joshua Rosenblum and lyrics by Lessner and Rosenblum. It imagines what the physicist may have been dreaming about prior to the publication of his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905.

Proceeds will benefit The Harpswell Foundation, which provides education, housing and leadership training to children and young women in the developing world.
