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

I object just because I hate Picassos excuse for art.
Thats what parents should object.
Serial killer on canvas is what I call him.
Yuk, just plain yuk.
Now if we had an artist with some talent speaking to Einstein-

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