An Interview With Peggy Guggenheim is a monologue in musical form delivered by Peggy Guggenheim - the woman who was benefactress to Jackson Pollack and shocked the art world with her avant garde taste and independent outlook. This musical play is a meditation on what it meant to be a woman navigating the art world in the 1900's, and what it means to be an independent mind searching for meaning in a fragmented world. For one night only, Miss Guggenheim will take to the stage to reflect on her life and her legacy.
