Meanwhile, lifelike incarnations of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso take the stage during Picasso at the Lapin Agile, which was penned by film star and comedian Steve Martin and runs from October 14 through November 5. Set in a bar, the production imagines a comical meeting between two 20th-century luminaries and their interactions with strangers, a rare feat as the two usually preferred to stay home to prank-call city-council members. The show runs on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m.
From November 25 to December 18, A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol regales audiences with a holiday tale of humor, heartbreak, and hope.

The show's actors deftly re-create the dynamic of a radio show on stage without forcing the audience to wear foil hats. The show runs on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
