A fictional meeting between two of the 20th century's most fascinating artists -- Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and American poet Sylvia Plath -- is imaginatively explored in Néstor Caballero's Musas. Though Kahlo and Plath never met in real life, this drama depicts their unique perspectives on art, love and death, as well as with their tumultuous relationships with painter Diego Rivera and English poet Ted Hughes, respectively. Musas is full of biographical details and references to the two dynamic women's lives, revealing portions of their distinct personal and creative paths that were each marked by a fatal destiny.

Quotes & Highlights
“Gorman’s dialogue crackles with humor and passion; she makes Douglas a great storyteller as well as a historian … Director Steve Scott is sensitive to the shifting emotions that run throughout the piece and guides the pacing with a deft touch.” – newcitystage.com
“Gorman deftly imagines a timeless moral and ethical struggle through a contemporary lens … By threading the drama with Graham’s fiery historic lectures, the script creates thought-provoking parallels and tension between the American past of the textbooks he teaches with Graham’s personal experiences — motifs the talented cast artfully grasps.” – Time Out Chicago
