Texas State presents Steve Martin’s ‘Picasso at the Lapin Agile’


Texas State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will present “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” Feb. 7-12.

Written by award-winning actor, writer, comedian and musician Steve Martin, “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” brings together a youthful Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in 1904 shortly before either is to become famous. As they debate art and science, they are soon interrupted by a time-traveling stranger who adds his own “twist” to the discussion. Directed by Aaron Johnson, this inventive, witty comedy was the first full-length play by Steve Martin.

Performances will be at the university’s Theatre Center (430 Moon Street, San Marcos), at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 7-11, with a 2 p.m. matinee Feb. 12.

Tickets are $12 general admission and $7 for Texas State students. For reservations, call the Texas State box office at (512) 245-2204. For more information, call (512) 245-2147 or visit the Department of Theatre and Dance website at
