PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
It is 1904 and big ideas and even bigger laughs are flying at the Parisian bar “Lapin Agile” when Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet for the first time. The renowned scientist is about to transform physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter will soon set the art world afire with cubism, but tonight 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 promises of the 20th century. Steve Martin’s long-running off-Broadway comedy calls for an all-star cast and local actors Michael Lee, Colton Pratt, Miriam Roth, Anna Faye Hunter, Sean Verdu, Rachel Fey, Mike Miller, Julian Bucknall, and Isaiah Culling fit the bill beautifully. Throw in Mark Arnest on piano and some lively Can Can tunes and you have a wonderful evening of intelligent theatre.
