EINSTEIN virtually from the day it opened at Toronto Workshop Productions in 1985, starring the late Canadian actor Peter Boretski and directed by Jack Blum, Einstein has been playing in some theatre or country around the world. It has been translated into a dozen languages and has appeared at Israel’s national Habima Theatre (Misha Asharov, director Howard Rypp), in several of the United States starring Chris Brittain, in Mexico where actor Patricio Castillo won an award for Best Actor (director Bruno Schwebel), Chile (starring Nisim Sharim Paz), Brazil (Carlos Palma winning an award for Best Actor), Portugal (Fernando Jorge Lopes) and has enjoyed other productions in Argentina, Spain, India, Pakistan, Dubai and more. In 2008, Einstein was remounted by the Nephesh Theatre Company in Israel starring Victor Attar, directed by Howard Rypp. The play toured at the La Mama Theatre in New York City, Winnipeg’s Jewish Theatre and made several other stops in North America. Also, in 2008, Carlos Palma and the ACP theatre company of Brazil celebrated 10 years of performing Einstein!  In 2014, India’s famed Naseeruddin Shah starred in the Motley Theatre Group’s production of “Einstein” at the Prithvi Theatre of New Delhi.  The play was chosen by critics as the first of the 5 best new plays to appear in 2014.
