Pablo Picasso, Albert Einstein to grace Colorado Mountain College

Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein walk into a bar …

This fortuitous run-in of geniuses begins “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” an absurdist comedy created by screenwriter, actor and comedian Steve Martin.

From April 8-24, the Sopris Theatre Company is slated to show multiple showings of this off-Broadway play at the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus, a news release states.

“Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso are in a Parisian café 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,” the release states. “In Martin’s first comedy for the stage, he 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.”

The New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College, Spring Valley is located at 3000 County Road 114, Glenwood Springs.

Live performances are slated for:

• 7 p.m. April 8

• 7 p.m. April 9

• 7 p.m. April 15

• 7 p.m. April 22

• 7 p.m. April 23

• 2 p.m. April 10
