Join actor, writer, and visual artist Herbert Sigüenza for a free discussion of his one-man show A Weekend with Pablo Picasso.

The film version of the acclaimed one-man play is being presented by Caltech Public Programming for on-demand viewing through April 4.

In the show, Sigüenza vividly embodies the father of modern art during a fictitious weekend, whose events and musings are drawn from Picasso's writings, incorporating 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....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."
     — Los Angeles Times' theater critic Philip Brandes
