Martin’s Madcap Musings

 Soulstice Theatre founder Char Manny marks her final production with the company in Steve Martin’s 1993 work, Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Her direction is superb and one easily perceives the chemistry and sense of play between ensemble members who have collaborated frequently

Somewhere along the line, the single most successful solo recording act in history shows up to hang out as well in comedian Steve Martin’s hilarious Picasso at
