May 6-9, 2020
Tom Hendry Warehouse
The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and the Manitoba Bar Association are proud to present Picasso at the Lapin Agile, written by Steve Martin from May 6 to 9, 2020 at the Tom Hendry Warehouse. Cast entirely with members from the Manitoba Bar Association, the Lawyers Play is one of Royal MTC’s largest fundraisers and since its inception in 1990 has raised over $1,090,000 to ensure vibrant theatre remains accessible to all Manitobans.

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, Steve Martin, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame, and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects with infectious dizziness.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Starring 
David Dick, Tashia Dreger, Reid Girard, Benji Greenberg, Danny Gunn, Jaime Rosin, Ashley Korsunsky, Jim McLandress, Neil Steen, Geoffrey Toews, Maria Versace
