DescriptionSteve Martin is one of America's most treasured actors, having appeared in some of the most popular moves of our time. He is also an accomplished screenwriter who has in the past few years turned his hand to writing plays. The results, collected here, hilariously explore serious questions of love, happiness and the meaning of life; they are rich with equal parts of pain and slapstick humour, torment and wit.

"Steve Martin's comic wit has never been sharper."--USA Today "Steve Martin is the most exciting new playwright in town. . . . His first play is a major treat."--Newsday "[Picasso at the Lapin Agile is] a very engaging 75-minute shaggy dog of a comedy . . . Mr. Martin has also created a number of moment of real humor and wit. . . . His manner is to so mix the sublime with the ridiculous that they can't be easily disentangled."--Vincent Canby, The New York Times "Steve Martin is a gifted screenplay writer, and as Picasso demonstrated, a smart, facile thinker with a serious reach."--Variety "Picasso at the Lapin Agile is Martin's poker-faced--and very funny--riff on the birth of the modern century."--New York "More laughs, more fun and more delight than anything currently on the New York stage."--The New York Observer
