“Albert Einstein: Reluctant Superstar” with George Capaccio

When: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

You’ll be introduced to the great scientist’s principled stand against injustice and the price he paid for his unwavering devotion to humanity. The performance will begin with a brief recap of his stunning scientific breakthrough in 1919 when his general theory of relativity was confirmed. News of his triumph brought him worldwide acclaim and the status of a “superstar” in the eyes of the public.

• Before George Capaccio and his family moved from Boston to Durham, George performed in many of Boston’s theaters, including the American Repertory Theater (ART). As a member of the cast in ART’s Alcestis, written and directed by Robert Wilson, George traveled to Paris to perform in the annual Festival d’Automne. For several years, he acted with the Museum of Science’s Science Theater, where he performed in the Planetarium as Galileo and in the Theater of Electricity as Nikola Tesla, in addition to acting in a play celebrating the scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci. George’s performing career includes working as a professional storyteller for audiences of all ages and performing to public schools in and around Boston. He is currently listed on Young Audiences of Massachusetts’ (YAMA’s) roster of performing artists for elementary and secondary schools. In addition to performing, George is a political activist whose primary focus has been the Middle East. During the period of sanctions on Iraq (1990-2003), he made 9 trips to Iraq to deliver banned items to hospitals and schools, and to connect more deeply with families in Baghdad as a way of understanding the impact of sanctions on the lives of ordinary Iraqis.
