Picasso at the Lapin Agile
"Picasso and Einstein walk into a bar..." It may sounds like the setup for an intellectual, dirty joke, but instead is the setup for an intellectual, sexy play!
Comedian Steve Martin brings together three of the century's most influential figures, namely Picasso, Einstein, and a revered rock and roll superstar from Memphis. If it sounds a little wild and crazy, that's because it is, as Martin sprinkles a little philosophy between the jokes that fly fast and furious.
Th Lapin Agile is a bar and a hangout for the artists, writers, and eccentrics who are giving direction to the twenty-first century's avant-garde, and into this fertile mix we stir the over-the-top real-life characters of Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein.
When a visitor from the future arrives in the form of a hip-swiveling singer from Memphis, Steve Martin adds a third major influence of the century. But which will have the biggest impact on humanity? Art, Science, or Pop Culture? In a moment of celestial fantasy, Einstein and Picasso see their names spelled across the heavens, but they don't see the visitor's.
"Oh yeah, it's there. Right above both of yours and three times as big. Just like Vegas," the visitor points out and then adds, "Get used to it gentlemen, 'cause that's the way it works." It's a touch of cynical humor from a playwright who may be a refined intellectual at heart, but is world-famous as that "wild and crazy guy".
