Picasso at the Lapin Agile

By Steve Martin

Directed by Martin Andrews

The play features the characters of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, who meet at a bar called the Lapin Agile (Nimble Rabbit) in Montmartre, Paris. It is set on October 8, 1904, and both men are on the verge of an amazing idea (Einstein will publish his special theory of relativity in 1905 and Picasso will paint Les Demoiselles d'Avignon in 1907) when they find themselves at the Lapin Agile, where they have a lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent while interacting with a host of other characters. Written by Emmy, Grammy and Oscar Award winning playwright, actor, comedian and musician Steve Martin, the play is an audience favorite.
September 5-28, 2014. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets $22.
