Rick Scheideman and business partner Joel Agnew will present An Evening with Albert Einstein at the Pioneer Inn’s courtyard in Lahaina on Friday, March 4 and 18, April 8 and 22, and May 6 and 27, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Last Friday, the one-man show drew a packed house.

“Barefoot and rumpled, he stands before the chalkboard puzzled, scratching his head. He rubs out an equation and steps back to consider. Then, with chalk in hand, he writes a new equation in an effort to understand the universe. Pleased with himself, Albert Einstein turns toward the audience and speaks.”

“From Mark Twain to Einstein to Sitting Bull, this actor has the ability to look and be almost unidentifiable from one show to the next,” wrote local theater critic Michael Pulliam. “If acting skill combined with a Lon Chaney-esque Man of a Thousand Faces equals acting brilliance, then Scheideman is the best actor on Maui.”

Scheideman will also present An Evening with Mark Twain on Friday, March 11 and 25, April 15 and 29, and May 20.

Tickets for all shows are $20.
