Picasso At Lapin Agile Preview
The Kendall Campus will kick-off its 2010 theater season with Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a period piece written by entertainer Steve Martin.
First performed in 1993, the play answers the question, “What would Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein talk about if they met each other at a bar in Paris?”
The plot is set in 1904 at the Lapin Agile (translated to “Nimble Rabbit”), a cabaret in Paris, France. The audience will get to see Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein meet their during youth, before they became well-known.
Throughout the play, two men discuss opposing views on “talent” and “genius” with each man defending his point behind his expertise. Various characters, with roles and backgrounds too difficult to imagine, interact with Picasso and Einstein, leading to peculiar situations.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile opened Thursday, Sept. 30 at the Martin & Pat Fine Center for the Arts, located in building M.
The upcoming play dates are: Oct. 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 at 8:00 PM and Oct. 3 and 10 at 2:00 PM.
The event is free and open to the public.
