Picasso at the Lapin Agile

By Steve Martin

Directed by Jennifer Norton and Tom Custer

This absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame, and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness.

Breaking the Ice

By Kieran Lynn

Directed by Ken Landfield

Frank Montgomery is the Chief Scientific Advisor to the Arctic Council. He’s in Alaska to give a speech that will tilt the scales. The only problem is he has spilt yogurt on his suit, left his speech behind, and been kidnapped by militant activists. Can he make it back to the back to the podium before it’s too late?
