Picasso at the Lapin Agile

February 4 – March 12, 2017
(Opening Night: February 9, 2017)

Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage
Old Globe Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

By Steve Martin
Directed by Barry Edelstein

Steve Martin continues his creative relationship with The Old Globe, returning for the third time with this clever and crowd-pleasing comedy hit. Paris, 1904: The Lapin Agile, beloved watering hole to struggling artists and would-be geniuses, welcomes two soon-to-be legends for one extraordinary night. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, whose egos are as big as their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promise of the 20th century. Throw into this mix a mysterious visitor with a penchant for blue suede shoes, and you’re in for a brilliant and witty evening in the theatre.
