As it happens I was also trying to do something similar and had a window
open with Brian's response to a similar question last August. Here is it:

We've been here before. To get an expression either use parse on your
pasted character string or substitute on an expression. There are worked
examples in the list achives. The neatest is
title(substitute(hat(theta) == that, list(that=that)))
(note it is == not =)
