About this show

From the team that brought the hit Cinderella Eats Rice and Beans to Chicago Playworks last season, Einstein is a Dummy follows Albert Einstein as a boy. As an adult he changed our view of the universe, yet as a kid he struggled with the same issues any 12-year-old might - keeping up with violin lessons, impressing the girl next door, and comprehending the fundamental relationship of space and time to the speed of light, of course. This engaging musical about a fictional day in young Einstein's life boasts a spirited score and a healthy dose of imagination, comfirms that each of us is both ordinary and special and reveals life's atomic possibilities. Einstein is a Dummy is recommended for ages 8 and up. Groups: 312-922-0999
