Word of Mouth Theater Philippines, a non-stock, non-profit arts organization that brings performers, designers and creative practitioners of various disciplines together, presents "Play With Your Food," an evening of music, dinner and a staged reading of Steve Martin's Outer Critics Circle Award-winning comedy "Picasso at the Lapin Agile."
The event runs Oct. 18 (Tuesday) and Nov. 08 (Tuesday), 8 p.m., at Quantum Cafe, G/F Feron Bldg. 9590 Kamagong cor. Bagtikan, Makati City (entrance on Bagtikan St.)
"Play With Your Food" is part of WOM's ongoing Gallery/Bar Theater series. World Cuisine menus are specially designed for each PYWF event, as select visual artists, musicians, vocalists and actors from various media are gathered at a single occasion to create a unique theatrical experience.
In "Picasso at the Lapin Agile," a bar in Montmartre, Paris, in October 1904, is the setting for an imaginary meeting between 25-year-old Albert Einstein and 23-year-old Pablo Picasso. It is a year before Einstein publishes his groundbreaking "The Special Theory of Relativity," and three years before Picasso paints his defining "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon." The two young men on the verge of greatness, along with a host of eccentric characters, converge and collide in Steve Martin’s light-hearted comedy about imagination and the creative process.
Featuring (in alphabetical order): Apollo Abraham, David Bianco, Jennifer Blair-Bianco, Jeremy Domingo, Kenneth Keng, Lesley Leveriza, Leo Rialp, Rob Rownd, Jamie Wilson, with Rigil Kent Borromeo and Jean Judith Javier, and an exhibit by Anthony Piggott.
The show is directed by Jeremy Domingo, with visual design by Rob Rownd.
