Einstein Violin Story

Julius Baker, who was a great admirer of Albert Einstein, told me a story that I want to share, whether it is true or not.

Albert Einstein was playing violin in a concert in Philadelphia, and a well-known playwright (presumably one who wrote comedies), was sitting in the audience and laughing. After the concert Einstein asked the playwright, "Why were you laughing at my concert? I never laugh at your plays."
