Attleboro - Picasso at the Lapin Agile Through Sun, March 6. Attleboro Community Theatre welcomes 2022 with its production of PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE, written by Steve Martin and directed by James Sulanowski. Comedian Steve Martin's absurd comedy of historical fiction, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, has Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet in a bar in Paris in 1904, the year before Einsteins theory of relativity and Picassos 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. The anachronistic, self-referential, and self-aware nature of this play enraptures audiences into thinking about the role both science and art play in our lives, the men (and women) who inspire genius, and the philosophies that shape our world over the modern centuries.

Hingham - Polly Thayer Starr: Nearer the Essence Exhibit Sat, Feb 26, 11a - 3p. Polly Thayer Starr was an artist who lived beyond tidy definitions. Classically trained and well-spoken, she bounded onto the 1930s art scene, gaining fame for her formal portraits of Boston’s elite. She invited viewers to look beyond the immediate to discover the pure magic in those uncertain realms outside of what we expect to see. This exhibition contains not only her paintings of nature and portraits, but also many studies and sketchbooks to reveal the artist’s search for beauty and truth. In addition to never-before exhibited archival materials, personal effects, such as a spectacularly carved desk from her studio, will be on display. – Christie Jackson, Guest Curator, Trustees of Reservations
