Top 5 Things to Do in Phoenix This Weekend
Hello, weekend. We promise not to waste you. Here's how.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile @ Brelby Studio
For those of us who delight in the absurd, there is never enough Steve Martin to go around -- no matter how many bluegrass records and TV cameos he makes, or the number of chuckle-inducing tweets he drops into our feed (with the handle @SteveMartinToGo, at that).
Because of this ongoing shortage and the fact that we are willing to generously share our slices of Steve, we think you should know that Brelby Theatre Company is producing Martin's 1996 Off-Broadway work Picasso at the Lapin Agile.

- Tiffe Fermaint Releases 2013 Collection at Venue Scottsdale
- "The Joe and Jan Show" Rescheduled for March at 335 Commons in Downtown Phoenix
The play re-imagines history, bringing together Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, before either has encountered mega-fame for Cubism and the theory of relativity, respectively, at a Parisian cafe in 1904. The two chat in the company of an inventor and a bartender, among many others. And because Steve Martin worte it, a time-traveling, hip-swiveler of an icon also makes an appearance (we don't wanna spoil it!).
See it at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Brelby Studio. Tickets are $20.
