Did you hear the one about the two unknown geniuses who walk into a bar? Well, actor, comic and now playwright Steve Martin has used that set-up as the starting point for Picasso at the Lapin Agile.
The play imagines Alfred Einstein and Pablo Picasso meeting in a Montmartre bar one evening in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity. and the celebrated painter transformed  the art world with cubism.
“It’s important to remember that the playwright of ‘Picasso at the Lapin Agile’ is Steve Martin, stand-up comic, actor, writer, banjo player and something of a genius in his own right. So when big questions are being addressed, you can be sure that a layer of silliness is always in place (and, subversively, a layer of seriousness beneath that).” – The New York Times

“Highly credible and… very funny. The subject matter is daring… You get giggles in plenty [and] moments of enlightenment… The introduction of the final, exquisitely selected visitor from the future is a master stroke.” – New York Post
