Frida . . . A Self Portrait | Apr 19 – May 19, 2019 | Copaken Theatre in Kansas City, MO – Tickets $41-69
After suffering polio as a child, a grisly bus accident in her teens that left her with permanent injuries and in almost constant pain, and an addiction to Morphine, Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s life is explored in this astonishing play by KCRep’s Fox Fellowship Resident Actor Vanessa Severo. Through beautiful physicality and raw honesty, the triumphs and challenges of the now-celebrated painter and wife of the equally-renowned artist, Diego Rivera, is unearthed in the brave new work.
KC Rep patrons may park for free in HR Block’s underground parking garage beneath the building. Access the garage on Main Street between 13th and 14th Streets. Park on levels P2 to P5.
From the garage, take the elevator to the main lobby (Level L) and continue past the waterfall for Copaken Stage.
