About Picasso at the Lapin Agile
This long running Off Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian café in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame, and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness.
Sopris Theatre Company at CMC
The Colorado Mountain College Theatre has been in existence for over forty years, first under the direction of Tom Cochran until 2007, then Gary Ketzenbarger until 2020. Brad Moore is now at the helm. In 2009 our Associate of Arts with an emphasis in Theatre was instituted, with students able to take a degree in that subject area. With the passage of the state-wide articulation agreement, students majoring in Theatre are now able to transfer their AA degree in full to virtually all the four-year Theatre programs in the state of Colorado.
CMC Theatre changed its name to Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College to reflect our hybrid model of students and community members working together. This transformation reflects not only the growing breadth of the Theatre program, but also the nature of the company itself, which functions both educationally and as a true theatre of the community. CMC students and Roaring Fork Valley artists work side-by-side as actors, directors, designers, stage managers, and technicians. This collaboration between students and local professionals enhances intergenerational learning, leading the Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College to new heights worthy of its namesake.
