Hood Theatre stages Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.— Hood College Theatre’s fall production, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, will be staged Nov. 14-16 and 21-22 at 8 p.m. in the College's Avalon Performing Arts Studio in the Tatem Arts Center.

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the door beginning 30 minutes before each show. Admission is $10; students and Hood faculty and staff tickets are $5; and Hood students are free.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile is actor and screenwriter Steve Martin's first full-length comedy for the stage. The award-winning play features the characters Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, who meet at a Parisian café in 1904, one year before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and three years before the celebrated painter introduced the world to cubism. The absurdist comedy centers on their lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent while interacting with a host of other characters.

The show was named best off-Broadway play by the Outer Critics Circle in 1996.
