Picasso At The Lapin Agile

About a year ago I was given the opportunity to play Suzanne in this fantastic play by Steve Martin. By far one of my favorite scripts.   Today I share this quote from it – because why not? And because I want to do this play again sometime. I just love it.

“I could dream it forever and still not do it, but when the time comes for it to be done, God, I want to be ready for it, to be ready for the moment of convergence between the thing done and the doing of it, between the thing to be made and its maker. At that moment, I am speaking for everyone; I am dreaming for the billions yet to come; I am taking part of us that cannot be understood by God, and letting it bleed from the wrist onto the canvas. And it can only be made, because I have felt these things: my lust, my greed, my hatred, my happiness.”
