New Repertory Theatre's planned production of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters will be replaced by Picasso at the Lapin Agile, April 19-May 10, 2009. Daniel Gidron will direct this replacement production.

Because of the upcoming transitional phase at the theater, the New Rep has decided to close their current season with a modern production that focuses on the future. Steve Martin's play is set at the Lapin Agile in Montmartre, Paris where Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet and have a lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent. Casting will be announced at a later date.
