There's a wonderful and contagious kind of energy that radiates from the stage when high school students perform a comedy.  Here's an opportunity to catch some laughter and be inspired.  

Jesuit Stage & Film will combine talent from Jesuit College Preparatory, Booker T. Washington and Ursuline Academy in their performances of  Picasso at the Lapin Agile on Fri., Nov. 13th, Sat., Nov. 14th, Friday, Nov. 20th and Sat., Nov. 21st.  

All performances start at 7:00 pm inside the Jesuit Theater on the campus of Jesuit College Preparatory School located at 12345 Inwood Road, Dallas, 75244

The following reviews of the play itself serve to give you a feel for the comedy.    

It's important to remember that the playwright of Picasso at the Lapin Agile is Steve Martin, stand-up comic, actor, writer, banjo player and something of a genius in his own right.  So when big questions are being addressed, you can be sure that a layer of silliness is always in place (and, subversively, a layer of seriousness beneath that)." - The New York Times 

"Highly credible and... very funny. The subject matter is daring... You get giggles in plenty [and] moments of enlightenment... The introduction of the final, exquisitely selected visitor from the future is a master stroke." - New York Post

"Consistently entertaining." - New York Daily News

"Very engaging... Martin sends ideas onstage in baggy pants, with a cigar... mix[ing] the sublime with the ridiculous [so] that they can't be easily disentangled... Very good fun." - The New York Times

"A major treat." - Newsday

"Steve Martin's enlightening play is equally smart and silly..." - Hartford Courant
