New Cast Announcement for Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Coming to the Elite Theatre Company on the Main Stage in 2022!

From the comic genius of Steve Martin comes Picasso at the Lapin Agile, an imagined meeting of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in 1904 Paris. Both men, on the verge of becoming famous, discuss their process and realize that art and science may just come from the same passionate desire and exploration for “creating a new way of looking at the world.”

Come see the show that explores art, science, love, creation, and the 20th Century with a meeting of the minds of a young Picasso and Einstein, as written by the creative genius that is Steve Martin.
