Paris, 1904: The Lapin Agile, beloved watering hole to struggling artists and would-be geniuses, welcomes two soon-to-be legends for one extraordinary night. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, whose egos are as big as their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promise of the 20th century. Throw into this mix a mysterious visitor with a penchant for blue suede shoes, and you’re in for a brilliant and witty evening in the theatre.Directed by Christopher Crider-PlonkaShow dates: Aug 17-19 and Aug 24, 25, 26 at 8pmAug 20 at 4pmTickets $25 General / $20 Seniors / $15 Students

More information may be viewed online at BarnstableComedyClub.org.In June of 1968, Judy Garland was scheduled to appear for two nights at the Back Bay Theater in Boston. After a long and sometimes noble history, the Back Bay had been condemned and was designated for demolition following Miss Garland's appearance. The playwright, then a college student, ushered the first night of the run. Miss Garland showed up at the theater at ten o'clock. Her audience waited for her and cheered with relief when she finally appeared. After many apologies and vague excuses, she sang until well after midnight. It was an extraordinary evening. Thrilled by the experience, the playwright bought a ticket for the second evening's performance but Miss Garland never showed up.NIGHT FALLS ON EMERALD CITY is a snapshot, not a definitive moment, merely a "night in the life" sort of imagining of what might have occurred between the first and second nights.
