PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
Steve Martin’s long-running off-Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso at a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. Pablo and Albert, whose egos are as big as their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promise of the 20th century. Throw into the mix a mysterious visitor with a penchant for blue suede shoes and you’re in for a brilliant and witty evening in the theatre.

FUN FACT: In 1905 Picasso presented Pere Freae, the owner of the Lapin Agile, with one of his paintings. The painting hung at the Lapin Agile until 1912 when Pere sold it for approximately 20 dollars. Incredibly, this very same painting was then sold at Sotheby’s in 1989 for the incredible sum of 41 million dollars! This particular painting is now housed safely in a museum in New York.
