Prepare for an unforgettable three days with Pablo Picasso in this acclaimed one-man show. Actor, writer, and visual artist Herbert Sigüenza vividly embodies the father of modern art during this fictitious weekend, whose events and musings are drawn from Picasso's writings.

Sigüenza incorporates his own talents as he draws, paints, and sculpts as the story unfolds.

"Anyone expecting a politely informative docudrama from Herbert Sigüenza's one-man show A Weekend With Pablo Picasso is in for a shock—in the best possible way," wrote Los Angeles Times' theater critic Philip Brandes during its original run. "Sigüenza turns in an assured, charismatic and well-researched performance as the complicated Spanish expatriate who became the most influential artist of the 20th century....Sigüenza's secret weapon, however, is his talent as a painter in his own right. A lifelong admiration for Picasso led him to create the show, and his ability to paint credibly in his hero's style makes for a visual tour de force as the artworks come to life."
