Steve Martin's PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE to Open at Four County Players

As part of their 49th Season in Barboursville, Four County Players is proud to present PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE, opening October 1st on the Mainstage.

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, 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, as well as other fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness. Bystanders, including Picasso's agent, the bartender and his mistress, Picasso's date, an elderly philosopher, Charles Dabernow Schmendiman, and an idiot inventor introduce additional flourishes of humor. The final surprise patron to join the merriment at the Lapin Agile is a charismatic dark-haired singer, time-warped in from a later era.

This production is directed by 'Derby' Thomas and stars Charlie Gilliam as Albert Einstein, Andy Davis as Pablo Picasso, Stephanie Finn as Germaine, Nick Hagy as Freddy, Harold Langsam as Gaston, Robert Wray as Sagot, Stephanie Owen as Suzanne/Admirer, John Wharton as Charles Dabernow Schmendiman, Drea Dyer as The Countess, and John Baker as The Visitor.

Rounding out the production staff are Laura Mawyer as Production Stage Manager, Wendy Novicoff as Producer, Tricia Emlet as Costume Designer, Steven Reid as Lighting Designer, Dan Feigert as Scenic Designer, John Holdren as Sound Designer, Meg Hoover as Lead Carpenter and Properties Designer, Marietta Feigert as Assistant Scenic Designer, Mandy Shuker as Assistant Stage Manager, Carl Schwaner as Sound Engineer, Nick Hagy as Technical Director, and Gary Warwick White as Production Manager.
