LEMPICKA: a new Musical
Fleeing the the Russian Revolution, aristocrats Tamara de Lempicka and her beloved husband Tadeusz must make a new life in Paris with their daughter Kizette. Facing the rise of fascism, Tamara takes to painting to survive, and when she meets the free-spirited Rafaela, a prostitute on the fringes of Parisian society, she's torn between the life she cherishes with her husband and the passion, ambition, and possibility awoken in her by her new muse. Inspired by the life of the artist who transformed herself from penniless refugee to star of the art world when the world itself teetered on chaos, LEMPICKA looks at the beauty and danger of one painter pursuing it all.
Directed by Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin (The Great Comet), choreographed by Raja Feather Kelly, with music by Matt Gould and book and lyrics by Carson Kreitzer.
