By Steve Martin
Directed by Daniel K. McDermott
From the mind of Steve Martin comes a hilarious, if improbable, meeting of the minds. In the city of Paris. At the dawn of a new century. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein engage in intellectual warfare in a rundown bar. Each is on the cusp of world-changing revelations and as the wine flows so flows the absurdity and profundity. A Greatest Hit from Chameleon's 4th Season in 2002!
Picasso at the Lapin Agile is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Before The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken brought us the tale of a Skid Row nebbish, the girl he loved and the man-eating plant that threatened to tear their world apart. Packed with wall-to-wall show-stoppers, blood and guts and a healthy dose of doo-wop, join us as Chameleon remounts one of the most successful musicals of all time! First produced in 2001 as part of Chameleon's 4th Season, this is the culmination of the trio of Greatest Hits in Season 20!

By Duck Washington
Directed by Jena Young
Racism will be mocked, racists shunned, and stereotypes exposed in this humorous exploration of what it's like to be mixed race, deal with stereotypes, and find your place in the world. Inspired by playwright Duck Washington's own experiences, this mix of story-telling and sketch comedy will move you to buoyant laughter and deep thoughts as it examines concepts that are always more than just black-and-white.
Produced in association with Fearless Comedy Productions
