    The legendary stand-up comic, actor and writer imagined this hilarious meeting between a would-be scientist called Einstein and an irresistible but unknown painter named Picasso. It's 1904 in a Paris cafe called the "Lapin Agile" ("Nimble Rabbit"—you don't have to pronounce it to love it!). Wit and whimsy fuels their talk of creativity and inspiration with the bistro's unforgettable cast of regulars until a very different kind of genius mysteriously arrives from the future to "rock" their world!

    “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
