Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein walk into a bar — this isn’t a history lesson, it’s the plot of writer and comedian Steve Martin’s play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, and it opens tonight at the Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre, directed by Daniel Freeman. The men meet in a bar, the Lapin Agile in Paris, right on the cusp of some of their greatest work — Picasso’s painting Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Einstein’s theory of relativity. There, they discuss and debate the value behind artistic talent and scientific talent along with a few other characters, each with their own specific role in the debate. - Lauren Ortego
