A fantastic production of Picasso At The Lapin Agile has come to its final performances at the Complex Theater – East. Class up your weekend with a little culture.
Picasso At The Lapin Agile (written by Steve Martin) is the tale of a chance meeting between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein at a Paris pub in 1904, on the eve of Einstein publishing his Special Theory of Relativity and Picasso painting his masterpiece. There is even an appearance by another historical figure, but I’ll let that be a surprise.
I’m no Ben Brantley, but once in a while I do like an evening at the theatah. I can tell you that this cast is packed with stand-out performances, and with a script written by Steve Martin you know there will be quite a few laughs.

Where: The Complex Theater – East, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd.

Want to really impress your Valentine? Forget about dinner at the Olive Garden and a screening of Valentine’s Day (seriously, Ashton Kutcher? That’s a bad idea.) Take your true love (or BFF, friend from work, or that tattooed cutie you met at Intelligentsia) to see some terrific live theater. You’ll be glad you did.
