"Buck Creek Players will present Steve Martin’s comedy Picasso at the Lapin Agile. The setting is 1904. Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso — both determined to be the biggest names in their fields in the 20th century — were on the verge of their greatest work. What if they had met, and somehow sensed they were about to change the world through their science and art?
The fictitious meeting is set at a bar, the Lapin Agile, a hangout for artists, writers and eccentrics. A 25-year-old Einstein is waiting for a lady friend, but also meets the future in the form of 23-year-old Picasso. Each is sure he holds the key to the new century’s greatest idea.
Shows are March 9-25, Fridays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are only $13, $11 for students and seniors. Not recommended for ages under 13. Buck Creek is located at 11150 Southeastern Ave. Call 317-862-2270 for reservations. n
