This long running off-Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and
Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904,  just before the renowned scientist
transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the
art world afire with cubism.  In his first comedy for the stage, popular actor and
screenwriter  Steve Martin plays fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune as these
two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other
fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness.  Bystanders, including Picasso’s agent,
the bartender and his mistress, Picasso’s date, and elderly philosdopher,
Charles Dabernow Schmendiman, and an idiot inventor introduce additional
flourishes of humor.  The final suprise patron to join the merriment at the
Lapin Agile is a charismatic dark-haired singer time warped in from a later era. 


Written by:   Steve Martin
