Picasso at the Lapin Agile

by By Steve Martin
March 22-26

Directed by B. Michael Quale

Actor, producer, screenwriter and comic genius Steve Martin imagines a chance encounter in 1904 between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein at the famous Left Bank cabaret, the Lapin Agile. Einstein is one year away from publishing his Theory of Relativity and Picasso is three years from painting Les Damoiselles D'Avignon, the touchstone of cubism and modern art. Filled with a zany array of bohemian characters, Martin's play is an inspired exploration of the meaning of genius, the source of creative inspiration and the relative values of art and science in the 20th Century.

Winner of the 1996 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off Broadway Play and best Playwright, Picasso at the Lapin Agile explores the very essence of art and science. Martin says, "I think they are very similar and I wanted to make the point that art and science are about people being very, very intuitive and making gigantic leaps." A regular contributor to The New Yorker Magazine, Martin's essays and articles are often easily recognizable by his trademark wackiness, but they are also very thoughtful commentaries on our culture and contemporary events. An eloquent writer, he is really much more than a comic genius. In fall 2005, Steve Martin was awarded the 2005 Mark Twain Humorist Award, and his best-selling novella "The Shopgirl" was released as a major motion picture.
