The Sixth Act Night at Picasso at the Lapin Agile

The Sixth Act is pleased to announce “Sixth Act Night at PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE,” the second in a new series of collaborations between The Sixth Act and the Visual and Performing Arts Department (VaPA) at MCC.

This spring, VaPA is producing Steve Martin’s smart, sparkling comedy PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE. On Friday, April 12, at 7:30 PM, The Sixth Act would like to gather as many audience members as possible to watch this laugh-out-loud play together in the MCC Theater, followed by a post-show discussion with the play’s director, Professor Heather Fox, and students involved in all aspects of the production process. The Sixth Act also will have a short teaching packet available for anyone interested in some contextualizing information.

According to The New York Times, Steve Martin’s play “offers something intelligent to laugh about.” The play imagines an encounter between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein in which the two argue about art, science, and the future….

Tickets are $8 for the MCC community and $10 for the general public and may be purchased through "". To receive the teaching packet, please contact Professor Maria Brandt at "". Please contact Professor Heather Fox at "" for more information about the play itself.

Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments. The Sixth Act is supported by MCC’s Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program.
