Announcing Our 2015/2016 Season
Audition Info For 2015/2016 Season
Picasso at the Lapin Agile
by Steve Martin
Director: Jenny Christian
This long running Off-Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904,
just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter
set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays
fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century's achievements and prospects
as well as other fanciful topics with infectious dizziness. Bystanders, including Picasso' agent, the bartender
and his mistress, Picasso's date, an elderly philosopher, Charles Dabernow Schmendimen and an idiot inventor
introduce additional flourishes of humor. The final surprise patron to join the merriment at the Lapin Agile is
a charismatic dark haired singer time warped in from a later era.
Winner: 1996 Outer Critics Circle Award, Best Off-Broadway Play

` [so] that they can't be easily disentangled... Very good fun." - The New York Times
"A major treat." - Newsday
"Steve Martin's enlightening play is equally smart and silly..." - Hartford Courant
