Best Bets: Two-person play ‘A Picasso’ at Harbor City
The Germans have taken over Paris, and Pablo Picasso is called in from the cafe for interrogation. Three of his paintings have been confiscated from their Jewish owners and now he needs to determine the authenticity of the pieces for an art show. Or, rather, art burning party.
“A Picasso,” by playwright Jeffrey Hatcher is a two-person show with shades of real life starring Lawrance Bernabo, who reviews theater for the News Tribune, and Lisa Ellen Johnson as the artist’s questioner.
There are some untruths being spun in this quick-hit piece that becomes a sort of power play between the powerful woman and the artist known for being a womanizer.
