This new play by Alan Alda delves into the treasure trove of letters written by Albert Einstein, his wives and his friends, tracing an intimate and unfamiliar line across his life and work. Directed by Tony award-winning director Daniel Sullivan and featuring Tony-award winning actor Anthony LaPaglia, who was joined on stage by Kate Burton and Mia Barron, Dear Albert humanizes a giant in the pantheon of great scientists and sheds light upon his momentous scientific insights through first-hand accounts of ground-breaking discoveries.

Presented as a reading, this compelling new work painted a vivid portrait of one of the greatest figures in science.
