A new work from multi-award winning writer, performer, and teacher Jack Fry.
US Premiere at the Lounge Theatre - 12 performances only!
“Fry is outstanding…
“Best Actor” of the 2014 London Fringe Festival
London Free Press, London, Ontario
“Science history can merge with entertainment and this is how you do it.”

Sew and Sew Productions and the Lounge Theatre are thrilled to present Jack Fry’s new work, Einstein!. Einstein! has just returned from a 3 month summer tour in Canada where Fry was honored with “Best Actor” of the 2014 London International Fringe Festival by the London Free Press, Ontario, Canada. This accolade coincides with other rave reviews such as CBC, Manitoba who says, “A very human look at much mythologized man… compelling and sensitively presented.”
Jack Fry’s new solo show Einstein! is a historic drama that examines and explores the battles and sacrifices of a younger Einstein (pre-crazy hair days). The show is set during Einstein’s earlier years in Berlin, as he struggles to prove his General Theory of Relativity and prove his relativity as a father. It’s Berlin 1914 and Albert Einstein awaits news from an eclipse expedition in hopes that it will prove his Theory of General Relativity. Instead he is sent sideways as his world crumbles around him.
Einstein! is an inspirational and true story. Based on the recent release of 15,000 documents and three years of research, writer and performer Jack Fry shares insight into Einstein’s early life – a story that few people know. Among many things, this play highlights the trials we all face as individuals in a world that at times doesn’t want us to succeed.
The show is directed by Tom Blomquist, who wrote and directed television for 30 years and is now a tenured professor of film and television at California State University Long Beach.
Jack Fry’s first solo show They Call Me Mister Fry is a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed, autobiographical show about his first year teaching 5th grade in South Los Angeles. It has played all over North America including performances in
Mexico and Canada.
