Picasso At The Lapin Agile

Stagehouse Theatre
Grossmont College Drive El Cajon

The year is 1904. Albert Einstein, a 25-year-old patent clerk, waits for his date at the Lapin Agile, a Parisian watering hole, when 23-year-old Pablo Picasso drops in to meet a recent conquest who is hoping for a return engagement. Einstein is a year away from transforming physics with his theory of relativity and the young painter will soon set the art world afire with Cubism. But at this moment, they are drawn to each other by a mutual sense of self confidence and curiosity. Kept company over the course of their evening by an amusingly incontinent barfly, a gullible yet lovable bartender, a wise waitress and a surprise visitor from beyond, the two geniuses' conversation bounces like excited molecules and sweeps like bold brush strokes over art, science, love, existence, and the unknown. A witty and absurdist comedy from comic virtuoso Steve Martin, Picasso at the Lapin Agile tackles big ideas with an imagined meeting of two creative minds on the cusp of greatness.
