Acclaimed actor-writer Herbert Siguenza (of the famed Chicano/Latino performance troupe Culture Clash) returns to Los Angeles with his first one man show. Siguenza brings his virtuosic writing, acting and painting skills into Picasso's private studio, "Le Californie" on the coast of France in 1957 for an intimate and revealing weekend into the creative mind and work of one of the most inspiring artists of modern history. Picasso's controversial and flamboyant opinions and creations gripped the public imagination and forever changed 20th century art history. This play explores Picasso's proclamations about ambition, destruction, creativity, love and art as an agent of social change. (Recommended for mature audiences due to strong language.)

Special event! Thursday, April 7: An Evening With Picasso. At 7 p.m. in the Grand Lobby, there will be a wine tasting of Spanish wines, cheeses and olive oils, accompanied by an exclusive exhibition and silent auction of original Picaaso art works presented by the Andrew Weiss Gallery of Beverly Hills, followed by the 8:30 performance in Theatre 3 of "A Weekend With Pablo Picasso. Event presented by Los Angeles Wine Tasting and Los Angeles Theatre Center. $55. A pair of tickets: $85. Show only: $35, students and seniors $20.
