Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Picasso at the Lapin Agile
Written by Steve Martin
Directed by Christopher Rubin

January 14-February 13, 2022

From the comic genius of Steve Martin comes Picasso at the Lapin Agile, an imagined meeting of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in 1904 Paris. Both men, on the verge of becoming famous, discuss their process and realize that art and science may just come from the same passionate desire and exploration for “creating a new way of looking at the world.”

The Lapin Agile is the favorite bar of a group of regulars, “artist types: writers, poets, painters” who bring their own brand of wit, wisdom, and the art of being French, to challenge Picasso, Einstein, and a surprise visitor, in a debate about talent, genius, art, science, love, and lust, and the changes they will encounter in the 20th Century.
