Director of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Town Hall Theatre, Lafayette, CA, 2011

“Between the play’s 1993 premiere and the turn of the century, I probably saw ‘Picasso’ a dozen times and almost knew it by heart. And while all that familiarity didn’t breed contempt, it did breed a sort of numbing familiarity that made me lose my appreciation of the show’s mad comic genius. Since then, though, I hadn’t seen the play until catching Town Hall Theatre’s dazzling production last weekend. The show was not only well done, it also proved the piece has legs and remains as meaningful as it was in 1993… Porter’s direction moves things along quickly, yet gives the illusion of lingering on portions worthy of some pause for thought.”
