Capital University Theatre will present Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a comedy written by Steve Martin and directed by Bill Kennedy.
A man walks into a bar — it’s the beginning of many jokes and, it so happens, the beginning of a play by Steve Martin, a man who knows how to tell a joke. In this case, several historic figures — Einstein and Picasso — encounter each other at the beginning of the century they are both fated to change. And there is a mysterious stranger — a time traveler from the 1950s who will also change the world.
This is a thought-provoking play that questions notions of art, science, history and human potential. And it’s funny. But it’s not suitable for children. Thursday through Saturday performances will be given at 8 pm, and Sunday’s matinee will be given at 2.
All University Theatre performances will be given in the Cabaret Theatre, located on the lower level of the Harry C. Moores Campus Center on Capital’s Bexley campus. Tickets cost $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. They’re free for students with a current Capital I.D. Call the Cabaret Theatre Box Office at 614-236-7174 to reserve tickets.
