This multi-award winning and critically acclaimed one man show is the longest running solo theatre show in Los Angeles history and has played in theatres throughout the country. Now EINSTEIN will make its Charleston, SC debut at the Queen Street Playhouse playing May 26 - June 2 as part of the theatre's 2024 Summer Series.

Veteran LA based actor Jack Fry brings Einstein back from the beyond in this one-of-a-kind solo show 'filled with humor, wit, and humanity.' (Theater Scene NY). Fry also inhabits eight different personas during his performance, including several movers-and-shakers of the then scientific world as well as his 10 year old son Hans as well as Einstein himself.

Focusing on Einstein's earlier years when he was on the cusp of his greatest breakthroughs in physics, the show takes us back to 1914 Berlin where he is sent sideways in a world crumbling around him due to The Great War, a science establishment that doesn’t believe him and those that try to wrestle the theory away from him. Isolated for his pacifist views and with a wife who won’t give him a divorce, Einstein faces a huge scientific backlash, anti-Semitism and finally a nervous breakdown that kept him bed ridden for two months.

This critically acclaimed, multi-media show is told with great humor and visual graphics that help give us an insight into one of the world's most brilliant minds, brought to life by a bold and innovative performance by visiting artist Jack Fry.
