NY Einstein Play
A Good Portrayal


(Copyright 1979, JTA, Inc.)

NEW YORK — It is fit-
ting that on the 100th an-
niversary of Albert Eins-
tein's birth we have a play
about the life of the 20th
Century's greatest scien-
tist. "Albert Einstein: The
Practical Bohemian," a
one-man play starring Ed
Metzger, now at the Players
Theatre in Greenwich Vil-
lage, does justice to its sub-
Metzger and his co-
author, Laya Gelff, who is
also the play's director,
have wisely presented not
only Einstein, the ,scientist
_and public figure, but also
Einstein the man.

Looking somewhat like
Einstein, Metzger walks
around the stage, occasion-
ally trying to light a cigar or
a pipe or fiddling with his
violin, as he tells of his life,
the years in Europe in the
first act and in the United
States in the second.

What comes across is
not only a man concerned
about science and public
issues, but a deeply /II
human person with a
sense of humor about
himself as well as with
the personal problems
we all have. Metzger's ac-
cent may not be exactly
Einstein, but if it were,
the audience might not be
able to understand him.
However, his perform-
ance is flawless.
Frequently through the
play we have Einstein try-
ing to explain his theory of
relativity. My favorite was
that for a boy talking with a
pretty girl for an hour it
might feel like it was only
five minutes, but if he sat on
a hot stove for a second it
might feel like it was an
