'Albert Einstein' to visit Pleasanton

Beth Emek presents renowned physicist Saturday

Albert Einstein will be at Congregation Beth Emek next weekend.

Character actor Duffy Hudson will offer his true-to-life portrayal of the German-born theoretical physicist, exploring his personal life as well as his major scientific accomplishments, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.

"We will also be asking Hudson to touch upon Einstein's life in Europe during pre-World War II years and about his decision to remain in the United States when Hitler came to power," said Jennifer Amiel, coordinator for the event.

Hudson has visited the area many times for performances as Edgar Allen Poe, George Burns and Dr. Seuss.

"These kind of character performances always intrigue people," Amiel said. "With a great character performance like Hudson's, the audience feels like they've met a person from history. It can be a very powerful experience to connect with history in a more personal way."

After the performance, everyone can visit with "Einstein" and enjoy refreshments.

Congregation Beth Emek is located at 3400 Nevada Court. Buy tickets at Suggested donation is $10 per person; students are free.
