'Einstein: Master of the Universe' is a new Australian musical written by newcomer, Jess Newman. It portrays the tumultuous life of iconic physicist, Albert Einstein, and his struggle to balance the pursuit of his theories with his family. 

The show explores Einstein's relationship with physics, his insatiable enthusiasm for questioning everything around him and his attempts to uncover the workings of the universe. It also delves into his personal life, documenting his relationship with his first wife, Mileva Marić, from its romantic beginnings during their time together at Zurich Polytechnic University to their bitter divorce in 1919.
