Picasso at the Lapin Agile is a magical look into an imagined conversation between two minds that had a powerful impact on the shape of the 20th century and those lucky enough to have been there to witness it in a neighborhood bar in Paris in 1903. It brings to life Einstein and Picasso, still in their early twenties, as they debate the meaning of art, the power of thought and the essence of everything. Einstein is still toiling in his job at the patent office but is looking for a publisher for his Theory of Relativity, and Picasso is on the verge of painting his revolutionary Les Demoiselles dAvignon.
Written by celebrated comedian and actor Steve Martin, this play is comical and deep, moving and sometimes absurdist, and a profound and rewarding journey for the audience.
