The Theory of Relativity
A new musical
From Drama Desk Award nominees Neil Bartram and Brian Hill (The Story of My Life), "The Theory of Relativity" is a joyous and moving look at our surprisingly interconnected lives. Whether you're allergic to cats, in love for the first or tenth time, a child of divorce, a germaphobe, or simply a unique individual, everyone is sure to find themselves in this fresh new musical.
Presented by the Charles Stewart Howard Playhouse for only the second time on the West Coast, "The Theory of Relativity" explores the notion that all people are intricately interconnected; that our personal journeys can have profound effects on those with whom we come into contact, from our intimate partners to complete strangers. Through songs and monologues, our performers create an array of characters whose lives intersect as they explore the unfolding mysteries and adventures in their lives.
Albert Einstein’s principles underpin his belief that “only a life lived for others is worth living” and they infuse this musical with warmth while examining the wonders and complexities of the human experience.
"..a delight...all wrapped up in some delicate and well-performed music...I found the show to be extremely enjoyable." Daniel Faigin, Relationships and Science | “The Theory of Relativity” @ CSHP/Harter Hall.

What the London press said about The Theory of Relativity:
★★★★★ “A brilliant show, you’ll leave the theatre with a big grin on your face.” - Everything Theatre
“I defy anyone, whatever may be happening in their lives, to leave this production without feeling renewed hope, being profoundly uplifted” – London Theatre 1
“Take a Physics manual, blend it with the sound of The Book of Mormon, the hilariously nerdy references of The Big Bang Theory, a sprinkle of Chicago, few drops of Glee, bake it in a Broadway bowl, use all the originality you can have…. That’s the successful recipe for the spectacular The Theory of Relativity” – Live Like Tom
