Picasso and Einstein spar in a bar

“Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” now on the Chautauqua stage in Carmichael, captures Steve Martin’s witty fantasy about a duel of minds between two young geniuses. At a popular bar in Montmartre, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso debate and then find common ground. The year is 1904, and the denizens of this famous watering hole try to forecast the future of the twentieth century, with intermittent thoughts about their love lives. Directed by Maggie Adair Upton, the play features a strong cast and is suitable for adults only.
