Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin in Broadway PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE BY STEVE MARTIN
Birmingham Festival Theatre
1/11-1/27/2018
Picasso at the Lapin Agile is the third show of Birmingham Festival Theatre’s “Pursuit of Happiness” Season; a clever comedy hit written by the accomplished actor, writer, producer and musician Steve Martin. 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. This production is directed by Mel Christian and stars: Don Cano, Brad Riegel, Jonathan Sweatt, Ron Dauphinee, Carron Clark, Amyna Price, Bates Redwine, Terrence Jackson, Bliss Bailey, Nicole Singleton, and Zach Buse. The show will run Thursday, January 11th through Saturday, January 27th; Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows at 8 pm and matinee performance on Sunday, January 21st at 2 pm. There will be a reception following opening night on January 11th and a forum with the director and cast following the performance on Friday, January 19th.

Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Musical Show in Broadway RING OF FIRE: THE JOHNNY CASH MUSICAL SHOW
Theatre of Gadsden
1/26-1/28/2018
From the opening chords of vintage country to rockabilly, rock n’ roll, searing ballads and gentle songs of love and deep faith, Ring of Fire packs a score that provides a rich fabric in which to lay down the story of Johnny Cash. The great bio-pic “Walk the Line” told the story of the events of Cash’s life and the incredible struggles and triumphs of his life. Ring of Fire gives the music the spotlight, as a core group of talented actor/musicians celebrate the songs that are such a part of our collective experience. Back by popular demand, the original Ring of Fire cast is Back in Black for this special one-weekend only performance of Ring of Fire! Don't miss it!

When their cook accidentally serves up some tainted soup, 52 of the sisters are poisoned and die, leaving only five living nuns who were not at home the day of the toxic meal. When the convent’s first in charge, Reverend Mother Regina, splurges on a new TV, the sisters find themselves strapped for cash, as they still have four dead nuns to bury (whose bodies are being stored in the kitchen freezer!). The nuns decide to put on a benefit performance to raise the rest of the money before the health department discovers their secret. ?Oh...and did we mention the nuns SING and DANCE? NUNSENSE?
