Picasso At the Lapin Agile

Synopsis:
This long running Off-Broadway 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. Bystanders, including Picasso' agent, the bartender and his mistress, Picasso's date, an elderly philosopher, Charles Dabernow Schmendimen and an idiot inventor introduce additional flourishes of humor. the final surprise patron to join the merriment at the Lapin Agile is a charismatic dark haired singer time warped in from a later era.

Underpants, The

Synopsis:
Its premise is simple, if bizarre: Louise, wife to ruthless pragmatic government clerk theo, accidently managed to drop her drawers at the Kaiser's parade, thus becoming the talk of a thrillingly scandalised town. It seems that every man in Germany, except theo, now wants to bunk up with her.

WASP is a dark comedy about a family in the 1950s struggling to acheive the stereotypical perfection and harmony of the time, and failing. Instead, the characters are drowning in their own self-deprecation and are unsure of anything, even their own identities. they therefore turn to others, from voices in their heads to aliens from cartoons, for the answers they need, and even there cannot find them.
