hey hey! tonight i’m dining out with my awesome pal joey and then we’re heading down to the met theatre to catch a brand new musical/play called silver for gold (the odyssey of edie sedgwick) which just opened last night and was written and directed by david j (of bauhaus and love & rockets fame) it sounds highly interesting and off-beat and besides anything that relates to andy warhol and edie sedgwick is right up my alley! when i return home later this evening i will try and update this post with my initial thoughts on the show! i hope everyone else has themselves a truly kick-ass friday night (and is able to sleep late tomorrow – don’t forget this weekend daylight savings time kicks in – so unfortunately we’ll be losing an hour of sleep but at least it’ll be lighter outside in the evening) popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
David J writes and directs the world premiere production of Silver For Gold (The Odyssey Of Edie Sedgwick) at The Met Theatre in Hollywood, CA, beginning an exclusive two-week engagement on March 6th, 2008. Based on the life of Edie Sedgwick – Andy Warhol’s brilliant muse – the stage production explores one of the most charismatic yet misunderstood figures in popular culture. Starring multifaceted performer Monique Jenkinson ( aka Fauxnique ) as Edie and Steven Oliver Price ( founder of the Ronin Ensemble ) as Norich, the wounded healer, Silver For Gold traces the heroine’s dazzling rise and eventual downward spiral in a mythological theatrical experience that is part one-woman show, part chamber rock concert replete with avant-garde minimalist staging and video imagery.
