    PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE

    A comedy by Steve Martin; Directed by Daniel Gidron

    The year is 1904. The city is Paris. It is the age of the Belle Époque. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein cross paths at a bar, the Lapin Agile. Both men are young and on the verge of a breakthrough. They are ignited by the possibilities the future holds for them and their discoveries. But will this new century be one that esteems the arts, or will it choose science? Over the course of an evening, a motley crew, with the help of a mysterious visitor, erupt in a hilarious debate over the value of art as a science and science as an art. Who is right? Whose name will be written the biggest in the stars decades from now? Steve Martin brilliantly tackles these questions and more in his award-winning comedy, where philosophy and humor are seamlessly woven together in this surreal encounter of two great minds.

      I really enjoyed the acting and scenery and the Steve Martin humor was abundant. It is a slow-paced play without any heavy plot, but good for provoking thoughts and enjoying a different show.
