About the Performances


The Man Who Lost His Sundays - World Premiere Written and Directed by Marius Iliescu


One of the proud monarchies of Europe at the end of WWII, Romania found itself only two years later forcefully shovelled behind the iron curtain. Its national identity was distorted, history stolen, its peoples' spirit brutally crushed. Written as a manifesto against oppression seen as a trademark of general human behaviour, The Man Who Lost His Sundays is a story of survival where the only certainty was true love.


As the playwright, I know this for a fact, it happened to my own family. This is their story. This play is dedicated to them. - Marius Iliescu


Picasso at the Lapin Agile - Written by Steve Martin and Directed by Bill Premin by special arrangement with Samuel French


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.
