Description

This long running Off-Broadway 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 world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame & fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects as well as other fanciful topics.
