I heard about Steve Martin's play "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" years ago, but have never read it nor seen it. I was fortunate enough to have seen a Picasso retrospective at the Metropolitan Musuem. And then I was fortunate enough to have visited Paris earlier this year (for the first time in my entire life) and I got a chance to stand outside the actual Lapin Agile in Montmarte. And now, look, a theater company in Manila is going to do a staged reading of it! With French food, too. I wonder if they will be serving lapin.

Lapin Agile in Montmarte, Paris in 2011
The Lapin Agile, a bar in Montmarte, Paris in October 1904, is the setting for an imaginary meeting between 25-year-old Albert Einstein and 23-year-old Pablo Picasso. It is a year before Einstein publishes the groundbreaking The Special Theory of Relativity, and three years before Picasso paints his defining Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. The two young men on the verge of greatness, along with a host of eccentric characters, converge and collide in Steve Martin’s light-hearted comedy about imagination and the creative process.
