A Weekend with Pablo Picasso by actor/writer Herbert Siguenza of the powerful and politically renown theatrical troupe Culture Clash, created the original play at San Diego Repertory (2011) and stars as Pablo Picasso, the most influential artist in modern history.
Set in the 1957 artist’s studio in southern France, the artist paints and speaks and directly to the audience. “Six paintings in three days? Who do you think I am---Dali?”
Picasso was the first rock-star artist—a ferocious pacifist, obsessive art maker, flamboyantly opinionated philosopher, and self-proclaimed clown—who relished his passionate views about love, death, war, beauty, eternity, and creativity.
The Culture Clash artist, Siguenza’s one-man show, will amaze and promise a weekend you will never forget.
Iris was able to reserve center section seats for us for a great price. The first eleven seats will be in the center; after that they will be in the near side, so get your reservations in quickly.
