"Picasso at the Lapin Agile" opens on August 14

Chautauqua Playhouse announces the first show of its 33rd season, PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE, by Steve Martin, performing at the Playhouse. This is the first comedy for the stage by Martin, America’s favorite funny man. Einstein and Picasso meet in a Paris cafe in 1904 just before they set the world afire. An infectious, time warping, dizzying romp! The show is as funny as it is thought provoking.

The production is directed by Maggie Upton. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman, with lighting by Ross Aldrich. Costumes are by Eileen Beaver. The cast includes Daryl Petrig, Blake Flores, Marc Berman and many others.

The show will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. through September 20. The Chautauqua Playhouse is at 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $17 general and $15 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.

Because of popular demand, this year Chautauqua Playhouse has extended the run of each of its productions to six weekends. This makes 285 additional seats available for each production. Season tickets are currently available. Individual tickets go on sale on August 7.

For tickets and additional information call the theatre at (916) 489-7529
