Dear Albert, Alan Alda’s reading for the stage, delves into the treasure trove of letters written by Einstein, tracing an intimate and unfamiliar line across his life and work. Unquestionably one of the greatest – if not the greatest – minds of the 20th century, Einstein was as celebrated for his wit as for his Theory of Relativity. The reading humanizes a giant in the pantheon of great scientists and sheds light upon his momentous scientific insights through first-hand accounts of groundbreaking discoveries.
