This musical takes place at an after-life birthday party for Eleanor Roosevelt, thrown in the cosmos by Alice Roosevelt Longworth, cousin to Franklin Roosevelt and daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt. Notoriously unconventional, Alice has invited Albert Einstein to entertain with his latest invention, a musical method for summoning up moments from the past. With the help of Einstein's violin, buried secrets regarding love, marriage, and politics are fully revealed and passionately wrestled with in this entertaining and educational blending of history and whimsy.
