A Weekend with Pablo Picasso

An L.A. Theatre Works’ production
Written and performed by Herbert Sigüenza

“Defiantly quirky…funny, mysterious & uplifting! There’s undeniable power in the presence of this creative genius, as embodied so convincingly by Sigüenza.” — The San Diego Union-Tribune

In this one-man tour-de-force based on Pablo Picasso’s writings, writer/performer Herbert Sigüenza becomes the legendary artist, inviting the audience into Picasso’s private studio at the height of his celebrity. The story is an intimate portrait of Picasso’s thinking and artistic process as he creates six new works for a demanding high-profile buyer over the course of a single weekend.

L.A. Theatre Works’ production features large scale video projections of the art being created, historic images and text, and direct audience engagement from Picasso/Sigüenza completely immersing audiences in a full audio-visual experience of Picasso’s life and art.
