Set in 1904, three of the 20th-century’s most influential figures, Pablo Picasso (Jack Mason ‘12), Albert Einstein (Christian Krenek ‘12), and Elvis Presley (Jon Martin ‘11) meet by chance in a Paris bar, called the Lapin Agile. Each on the verge of their break-through work, they debate and challenge each other as they discuss the changes they will one day propagate. Accompanied by a neurotic group of bar patrons, these eccentric men from history engage in witty banter and satire, in this hilarious comedy.
ACT is a student-run organization at Holy Cross. In each production, students manage every aspect from directing and acting to lighting and set design. Picasso at the Lapin Agile, is produced by Grant Greeley ‘11; other members of the production staff include set designer Hallie Bianco ’12; lighting designer Molly Bier ’11, and costume designer Katy Hannigan ’12.
