Einstein’s Dreams
World Premiere of a Concert Reading of an Original Musical Play
Based on the novel Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman
Science and the Arts

einstein_a13The ground-breaking writing and composing team of Joanne Sydney Lessner and Joshua Rosenblum have created an original musical adaptation of Alan Lightman’s captivating and enchanting novel Einstein’s Dreams. Lightman’s novel caused a literary sensation when it was published in 1994, with one critic calling it “a brilliant novel of time in its marvelous flight…gorgeous in its writing, spellbinding and profound in its effects.” Lessner and Rosenblum, the authors of the cult hit musical Fermat’s Last Tango, weave Lightman’s ingenious fantasy vignettes about the nature of time into an infectious musical tapestry that revolves around Einstein himself and a compelling, elusive, beautiful woman who haunts his dreams. This provocative but lighthearted new work of musical theater is guaranteed to stimulate, move and entertain. No physics background required.

Produced by Brian Schwartz and sponsored by the Science Center and the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
