A Comedy by
Steve Martin

Comedian Steve Martin’s absurd comedy of historical fiction finds Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meeting in a bar in Paris in 1904, the year before Einstein’s theory of relativity and Picasso’s transition into cubism. The two celebrities of science and art spar for their fields, surrounded by a cast of supporting characters from the turn of the century and beyond.

Love Letters graphic

From its beginnings as a piece of fiction rejected by The New Yorker magazine, Love Letters has become a a staple of small theaters all over the world. It’s pure theater: two actors sit at a table and read letters which reveal their complicated lives together and apart. Melissa and Andy begin writing each other in second grade, sending birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. They continue corresponding as they follow the diverging paths of their mature years, ending in a touching culmination of shared experiences and mutual love.
