Upcoming: Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Sam Bass Community Theatre, January 30 - February 21

Received January 23:

Picasso at the Lapin Agile
Written By Steve Martin
Directed By Christina Gardner
Sam Bass Community Theatre

This witty absurdist comedy is about a fictional meeting between Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a bar, the Lapin Agile (which means "the nimble rabbit") in 1904 Paris... it's a bar that Picasso actually frequented and even painted in an early work. As the 20th Century rushed to a close, marked by unbelievable achievements and unimaginable horrors, comedian Steve Martin created a play that wraps up the century. In Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Martin brings together three of the century's most influential figures, namely Picasso, Einstein, and a famous hip-swiveling singer from Memphis. If it sounds a little wild and crazy, that's because it is, as Martin sprinkles a little philosophy between the jokes that fly fast and furious. It's a touch of cynical humor from a playwright who may be a refined intellectual at heart, but is world-famous as that "wild and crazy guy".
