Einstein! Apr 10  
Santa Monica Playhouse Einstein!
 
Jack Fry’s award-winning Einstein! returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse after traveling across the country and Canada, winning acclaim from New York City to Edmonton. Albert comes back from the beyond to set the record straight and tell us the real history behind his scientific breakthrough.

Told with humor and heart, Einstein! draws on the recent release of 15,000 documents and Fry’s three years of research to show a side of the genius that’s rarely seen. VIP tickets include a personalized badge, early entry, your choice of seating, a meet-and-greet with the star after the show and a personalized autographed program. The show is recommend for ages 10 and older. There is no late seating and no intermission.
 
   
Jamaica Farewell Apr 11  
Santa Monica Playhouse Jamaica Farewell
 
Jamaica Farewell returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse after successful runs all over the world. Debra Ehrhardt’s solo show is based on the mostly true story of her journey to the U.S. from Jamaica in the turbulent 1970s. As an 18-year-old secretary in Kingston, Ehrhardt bumped into a handsome CIA agent over a bowl of oxtail soup. She jumps on this chance opportunity and begins her escape to the U.S. with the help of the lovestruck American. Her way out of Jamaica is blocked by many obstacles: an alcoholic father, a Bible-spouting mother, the price of airfare, and U.S. government suspicions. Nevertheless, she begins a dangerous adventure that only the single-minded passion of a teenage girl would chance. The line between bravery and foolishness becomes blurred as she grows more desperate. When she agrees to smuggle a million dollars in cash to a mysterious contact somewhere in Miami, the agent becomes her unwitting accomplice. Every part is played by NAACP Award winner Ehrhardt, an actress capable of amazing mimicry. This one-woman caper’s got generous dollops of humor, laughter and light and has been optioned for film by a major Hollywood producer.

Linda O'Shea, our 19-year old narrator, is attempting to re-enact for the audience the most turbulent day of her life....but her family keeps interrupting, insisting on telling their side of the story. The 1970s was a time of old school living. No Facebook, no tweets, no texting, no Skype. A time when public ridicule in a close-knit, hermetically sealed Catholic parish was the ultimate nightmare. When Linda’s mother leaves it to Linda to tell her younger sister about the birds and the bees, the bawdy conversation is somehow overheard by the parish priest...and Father Lovett is not amused. He sets out to confront the family about "the corruption of their eldest daughter's soul."
