Dear Albert Einstein

The Message Hit Home for my Daughter!

“I bought my 11-year-old and 10-year-old son to see Dear Albert Einstein this past weekend. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Besides musically engaging, the libretto was immensely clever. My son was intrigued with Einstein’s life and went home to research him. I think that the message – don’t abandon your interests and skills just because they are ‘unpopular’ – hit home for my daughter. So thank you and the staff of NYCCT for bringing this to life.”

More About Dear Albert Einstein

Set in 1954, Dear Albert Einstein tells the story of Susan, a 12-year-old star math student who, when starting junior high, struggles between the desire to be herself and the pressure to be like all of the other girls in her class. Her admiration for Einstein, who periodically pops up in her imagination, complicates and eventually helps her along her journey. Combines early rock-n-roll, swing, and classical music.
