By Steve Martin

to be presented at our theater home at

Comedian Steve Martin’s absurd comedy of historical fiction, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, has Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet in a bar in Paris in 1904, the year before Einstein’s theory of relativity and Picasso’s transition into cubism. The two celebrities of science and art spar for their fields, surrounded by a cast of supporting characters from the turn of the century - and beyond! The anachronistic, self-referential, and self-aware nature of the play enraptures audiences into thinking about the role both science and art play in our lives, the men and women who inspire genius, and the philosophies that shape our world over the modern centuries.

(In Order Of Appearance)

(Ages May Be Flexible)

Freddy (American?)

The owner and bartender of the Lapin Agile. He is the boyfriend of Germaine and seems to be a simple-minded man; but, he occasionally says something truly stunning and also breaks the fourth wall.

Gaston (French)

An abrupt and direct old Frenchman with prostate problems, who talks plainly and only seems to care about sex and drinking.

Germaine (French)

A waitress at the Lapin Agile. She is Freddy's girlfriend and a very thoughtful woman. She has many ideas of what the 20th century will be like - and she has slept with Picasso.

Albert Einstein (German)

A 25-year-old scientist with big aspirations. He is a genius, with a book on the way called The Special Theory of Relativity. He often finds himself having to explain his theories and thoughts in a simpler fashion to the rest of the group, as he is wise beyond his years.

Suzanne (French)

A charming yet naive 19-year-old girl who is infatuated with Picasso. Suzanne and Picasso have already slept together, and she is left hurt and angry when he doesn't remember her.

Sagot (French/European)

Picasso's art dealer, who is obsessed with finding and selling great pieces of art for profit.

Pablo Picasso (Spanish)

A talented and charismatic 23-year-old painter. Extremely egotistical and self-confident, he is a serial womanizer and master of manipulation.

Charles Dabernow Schmendiman

A young inventor with huge dreams and little knowledge. Although he is hardworking, he is overshadowed by the genius and talent of Einstein and Picasso.

The Countess (Open)

An extremely intelligent woman, with whom Einstein is infatuated. She thinks like he does, being the one person to really understand him in the play.

A Female Admirer (Open)

A young admirer Picasso assumes is a fan of his, but who turns out to be an admirer of Schmendiman.

The Visitor (American Southern)

A polite and talented country-boy time-traveler, who adds another dimension and point of view to Einstein's and Picasso's debate. He is a blue-suede-shoed musician.

We look forward to seeing you all at auditions!
