You’ll be introduced to the great scientist’s principled stand against 
injustice and the price he paid for his unwavering devotion to humanity. 
The performance will begin with a brief recap of his stunning scientific 
breakthrough in 1919 when his general theory of relativity was 
confirmed. News of his triumph brought him worldwide acclaim and the 
status of a “superstar” in the eyes of the public.

• Before George Capaccio and his family moved from Boston to Durham, 
George performed in many of Boston’s theaters, including the American 
Repertory Theater (ART). As a member of the cast in ART’s Alcestis, 
written and directed by Robert Wilson, George traveled to Paris to 
perform in the annual Festival d’Automne. For several years, he acted 
with the Museum of Science’s Science Theater, where he performed in the 
Planetarium as Galileo and in the Theater of Electricity as Nikola 
Tesla, in addition to acting in a play celebrating the scientific genius 
of Leonardo da Vinci. George’s performing career includes working as a 
professional storyteller for audiences of all ages and performing to 
public schools in and around Boston. He is currently listed on Young 
Audiences of Massachusetts’ (YAMA’s) roster of performing artists for 
elementary and secondary schools. In addition to performing, George is a 
political activist whose primary focus has been the Middle East. During 
the period of sanctions on Iraq (1990-2003), he made 9 trips to Iraq to 
deliver banned items to hospitals and schools, and to connect more 
deeply with families in Baghdad as a way of understanding the impact of 
sanctions on the lives of ordinary Iraqis.
