Steve Martin Comedy Opens New Season at Aurora Fox

      Steve Martin’s comedy “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” where Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein meet by accident in a bar in Paris in 1904, will open September 14 for a one-month run at the Aurora Fox Theater, 9900 E. Colfax Avenue.
     One of the most popular live plays in the country for the past decade, “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” is the story of two brilliant young men on the verge changing the world, each in his own unique way. It’s about passion for ideas and for life, about romance, art, science, the Fourth Dimension and an E-shaped pie.
     The two geniuses argue over which one will have the greatest impact on the coming century. It turns out that honor belongs to a third young man who shows up late that night quite unexpectedly – from another dimension.
     The play is packed with charming, colorful characters – denizens of the Lapin Agile, a popular hangout for artists, thinkers, and adventurous night people rich and poor.
     “The play is just what you’d expect from Steve Martin – funny, charming, smart, silly at times, and always with a great big heart,” says Director/Producer John Ashton. “It moves quickly; it’s got a few delightful surprises, something to think about, and at least three love stories. And oh yeah, it’s real funny.”
     The play features some of the finest comic actors in the area, including Jack Wefso, Tupper Cullum, Rhonda Brown, and Steve Sealy, as well as a special guest appearance by nationally renowned local musician Jonny Barber.
     Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays from September 14 through October 14. For more information or to buy tickets, call the Aurora Fox Box Office at 303-739-1970, or purchase tickets online at .
     “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” is presented by the Aurora Fox and produced by Ashton Entertainment.
