David Morgan, Northwest technical director, is the director and set designer for the play.
The play, written by noted comedian and actor Steve Martin, imagines a comedic meeting between Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian café in 1904, just before the scientist changes the field of physics with his theory of relativity and the gifted artist transforms the art world with his cubism. Other characters come in and out of the bar to add to the comedy.
Tickets for the play are $10, General Admission, and $5 for seniors and students. Tickets are available at the door.
