PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE by Steve Martin, 14-17 Nov 2007.
Directed by Dave Whitaker.
A richly comic fantasy in which Picasso and Einstein meet in a bar in 1904 before their larger fame sets in. Steve Martin said: “It’s really about how exciting it is when you’re on the verge of something.” What they are on the verge of is the Twentieth Century. Steve Martin has had acclaim for roles in Roxanne, Parenthood, The Man With Two Brains, and Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid. In addition to his collected comic writings entitled Pure Drivel, and Picasso, he has also written a novella: New York Times bestseller Shopgirl, which was filmed in 2005.
