Isadoora Presents "Picasso at the Lapin Agile"
Steve Martin Comedy Opens 6th Season of Theatre

(Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin) What would happen if a young Picasso and a young Einstein met in a local bar in Paris?  Come and see the Isadoora Production of “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” to find out.  Isadoora Theatre Company marks the beginning of its sixth season of theatre by opening “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” written by familiar comedian Steve Martin.

The imaginary meeting takes place in 1904 at the Lapin Agile, a famous Parisian cabaret, where the two self-engrossed and driven geniuses on the cusp of greatness are accidentally thrown together and loosely debate whose contribution will have a greater and longer lasting impact upon succeeding generations. A physicist on the verge of a breakthrough and an artist in a rut meet and between theory, idolatry and a cast of crazy archetypes, Picasso and Einstein discover their masterpieces. Winner of the 1996 New York Outer Critics’ Circle Awards for “Best Play” and “Best Playwright,” Picasso at the Lapin Agile according to Steve Martin- yes that Steve Martin- suggests “that art and science, at their most creative levels, operate in the same way”.  This show will have audiences laughing and thinking differently about science and art.

The Isadoora production is directed by Renee Kujawski and will mark the company’s first appearance at the newly renovated Sturgeon Bay High School auditorium.  “Sturgeon Bay schools have been a most gracious host,” notes Isadoora Artistic Director Christine Callsen.  “This is a new venue for Isadoora and we’re hoping audiences will seek out the show at this wonderful, but seldom used location.  The space was recently remodeled to make a charming theatre space.  ‘Picasso at the Lapin Agile’ is perfect for the space because the show pushes the audience to learn about science and art but has them rolling in laughter at the same time.”

Isadoora Theatre Company, a Door County community troupe, presents “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” at 7:30 p.m. Thurs- Sat, Oct 4-6 and 11-13, and 2 p.m. Sunday matinees, Oct 7 and 14 in the auditorium at Sturgeon Bay High School, 1230 Michigan St., Sturgeon Bay.  Tickets are $12 and are available at the door or by calling 493-3667.  For more information please visit www.isadoora.com.
