ROME LITTLE THEATRE TO PRESENT ‘PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE’ THIS WEEKEND AND NEXT

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

Do you wish to be entertained this weekend?  Then head on over to the Rome Little Theatre!  The RLT will present “Picasso at the Lapin Agile”, an absurd comedy written by Steve Martin, over the next two weekends at the DeSoto Theatre, 530 Broad Street in downtown Rome.  The show will begin at 8 pm on Friday and Saturday nights and at 2:30 pm on Sundays.

“Picasso at the Lapin Agile” takes place at Le Lapin Agile, a bar in Paris, at the turn of the century.  A year later, Albert Einstein publishes his Theory of Relativity.  Three years later, Pablo Picasso paints his famous work “Les Demoiselles D’Avignon”.  The play follows the story of two genuises who contemplate on the century’s prospects and achievements as audiences meet the hilarious bystanders and humorous patrons.

In the RLT production of “Picasso at the Lapin Agile”, Eliot Rutledge plays the role of Pablo Picasso.  Rutledge indicates that it has been a challenge to play such an eccentric character, a challenge that he embraces.

This show is rated PG-13 due to language and sexual content.  It may not be suitable for young viewers.

Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and students, and $12 for children.  They may be purchased online at www.romelittletheatre.com or through the RLT box office by calling (706) 295-7171.
