Picasso at the Lapin Agile
February 2nd - February 25th
Directed by Jill Manser
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, and a final surprise patron add merriment and additional flourishes that will keep you amused and enthralled throughout.
June 2 - June 25
A vacuum repairman moonlights as a street musician and hopes for his big break. One day a Czech immigrant, who earns a living selling flowers, approaches him with the news that she is also an aspiring singer-songwriter.
The pair decide to collaborate, and the songs that they compose reflect the story of their blossoming love.
