Martin to Ore. troupe: Show will go on, on my dime

Mar 15, 2009 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press

Steve Martin has offered to pay for an off-campus production of his play 'Picasso at the Lapin Agile,' which was banned from a high school because parents objected to what they called adult content.

The actor and comedian said in a letter to a newspaper that he wants to keep the play, conducted in other high schools without controversy, 'from acquiring a reputation it does not deserve.'

The 1993 play imagines a meeting between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein in a Paris bar as they are on the verge of great achievements in painting and physics.

Thats what parents should object.

Oh Lord, Picasso is a genious. Many have tried to imitate him, many have failed.
