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
“A frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion… a thoroughly serendipitous journey.” —New York Times
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents On the Verge, or The Geography of Yearning, a fanciful comedy about three women explorers. Brave, willing and yearning to see it all, these women enthusiastically begin their trek to Terra Incognita in 1888, only to discover that they are adrift in time. The playwright crafts a linguistic labyrinth for his heroines as they navigate through uncharted territory populated with pop culture and possibility.
