• Winter Play: Picasso at the Lapin Agile in the Studio Theater on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Evenings

    Posted February 26, 2015

    This year’s Winter Play is Picasso at the Lapin Agile, and there will be three performances—this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings—in the Studio Theater. Written by actor/comedian Steve Martin, the play tells the story of a fictitious meeting between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein in a Parisian bar in 1904, just months before Einstein transformed physics with his Special Theory of Relativity and three years before Picasso set the art world on its ear with his cubistic Desmoiselles D'Avignon. The two geniuses, both self-important and perceptive, engage each other, as well as the patrons of the bar, on women, art, rock and roll, probability theories, and, of course, their own impending importance in the new Twentieth Century.
