Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, meet at a bar called the Lapin Agile (French: “Nimble Rabbit”) in Montmartre, Paris. Both men are on the verge of disclosing amazing ideas: Einstein will publish his special theory of relativity and Picasso will paint Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. At the Lapin Agile, they have a lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent, while interacting with a host of other characters.
The play attempts to explain, in a light-hearted way, the similarity of the creative process involved in great leaps of imagination in art and science. Written by Steve Martin, directed by Wynter Elwood.
Thursday performances are pay-what-you-choose.
Tickets ($22) here.
