Cherry Creek Theatre Company presents
April 5 – April 29, 2018
Cherry Creek Theatre Company presents A PICASSO playing now through April 29th at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center. Paris, 1941. Pablo Picasso (Logan Ernstthal) has been summoned from his favorite café by German occupation forces to a storage vault across the city for an interrogation. His questioner is Miss Fischer (Susie Roelofsz), a beautiful “cultural attaché” from Berlin. Her assignment: discover which of the three Picasso paintings recently “confiscated” by the Nazis from their Jewish owners are real. The ministry of propaganda has planned an exhibit, and only the great artist himself can attest to their authenticity. What Miss Fischer finds leads to a cat-and-mouse drama about art and politics; sex and truth; and a twist at its climax.
With over 30 plays to his name Jeffrey Hatcher is best known for the stage adaptation of Tuesdays with Morrie which he co-wrote with author Mitch Albom, Three Viewings, a comedy consisting of three monologues – each of which takes place in a funeral home and the stage adaptation of The Turn of the Screw, Henry James’s psychological thriller. Hatcher also wrote the book for the Broadway musical Never Gonna Dance and the musical, ELLA. This production is under the direction of Billie McBride.
