Opening March 2nd
“Picasso at the Lapin Agile”
t’s October, 1904 in Paris, France. Young Albert Einstein and young Pablo Picasso meet at a bar to discuss philosophy, politics and women.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile, written by Steve Martin and directed by Dave McGrath, is a fun romp through history set against the dawn of the twentieth century.
The pair, who do not know each other, both find themselves at the same bar. Albert (), who had promised to meet his girlfriend down the street, comes into the bar precisely because she knows that he would not expect her to meet at the place that they determined. Pablo ( ) enters looking for women to seduce and finds Suzanne ( ) a prior conquest.
The two men dispute which is better – the creative art or the scientific mind – as they debate the future of men.
Joining the ever growing crowd is a time traveling visitor ( ) who plays the part of Elvis and adds his own philosophy.
The witty and amusing dialogue is also thought provoking. We know the future they talk of but it’s still interesting and somewhat funny, when Germaine says that Hiroshima will be…modernized. This is two famous creative men, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, set against each other at a time when the world was ready for both artistic and scientific inventions. Ultimately, they both agree that the creative act is beautiful, in of itself.
