Contemplate Genius in Lapin Agile with All An Act Players
Picasso at the Lapin Agile promises to give audiences an extraordinary night of comedy
Friday, Mar. 9
When he's not portraying iconic silver screen roles such as the sadistic dentist in Little Shop of Horrors, or composing Tony-nominated scores for Broadway musicals or penning novels and essays, Steve Martin dips his toes into the playwriting pool. Okay, he is actually a fully submerged creative genius, and it is actually the nature of said ability — creative genius — that Martin examines in his 1993 play Picasso at the Lapin Agile.
The marvelous players at the All An Act Theater are bringing this work to the Erie community, portraying such ingenious heavy hitters as Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, as they meet in France in 1904 and debate the merits of art, science, and talent, all while interacting with the less-famous but equally fascinating characters who populate the bar, the Lapin Agile.
Directed by veteran theater maven J.D. Mizkowski and starring some of the area's eminent stage talent, including Adele Crotty Gross and David W. Mitchell, Picasso at the Lapin Agile promises to give audiences an extraordinary night of comedy, insight and creative genius. — Cara Suppa
