Picasso at the Lapin Agile
By Steve Martin
Directed by Barry Edelstein
"Artful comedy—a crisp and satisfying revival! Steve Martin tosses in goofy anachronisms and wordplay and convention-flouting twists with the distractible glee of a kid discovering new toys." —The San Diego Union-Tribune
Steve Martin continues his creative relationship with The Old Globe, returning for the third time with this clever and crowd-pleasing comedy hit. Paris, 1904: The Lapin Agile, beloved watering hole to struggling artists and would-be geniuses, welcomes two soon-to-be legends for one extraordinary night. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, 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 this mix a mysterious visitor with a penchant for blue suede shoes, and you’re in for a brilliant and witty evening in the theatre.
