World Premiere of new play written by Jay Prasad

 Directed by OBIE Award Winner Randolph Curtis Rand


Variations Theatre Group presents the world-premiere of Jay Prasad’s new play, Einstein. Directed by OBIE Award winner Randolph Curtis Rand, Einstein follows the turbulent life of the renowned physicist as he moves from a dropout with no prospects, to the most renowned scientist of his time.

Einstein was an enigmatic and controversial figure from his early years until his death. Who was the real Einstein? The man who cruelly mistreated his first wife, or the one who worked day and night to bring over refugees from Hitler’s Germany? The pioneer who explored new frontiers in science, or the road blocker who passionately opposed quantum mechanics and the Big Bang theory? Jay Prasad’s play explores the many facets of his character and gives the viewer an opportunity to judge the complex man behind the charismatic genius.
