On Saturday, February 9, Farnsworth Art Museum and Everyman Repertory Theatre will co-present a dramatic reading of actor Steve Martin’s comedy Picasso at the Lapin Agile as part of the “Artists on Stage: Everyman Rep at the Farnsworth” series.

The dramatic reading will take place in the museum’s auditorium at 2 p.m. Snow date for the performance is Sunday, February 10, also at 2 p.m.

Martin’s absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the 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, Martin plays fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune as the two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other fanciful topics.

The reading is directed by Suzanne Ramczyk, a recently retired theatre professional. The cast features David Greenham, Jennifer Hodgson, Paul Hodgson, Robin Jones, Nicole Provonsil, Brian Ross, Scott Anthony Smith, and David Troup.

Tickets are $15, $12 for Farnsworth members.
