Frida Vice-Versa, a one-woman show written by Marian Licha and R. Dennis Green directed by Jessica Lefkow, flourishes on the conceit that the audience might be among Frida Kahlo’s first students at La Esmeralda School for Painting in Mexico City.
In Frida Kahlo’s unconventional art class, the first lesson becomes the final lesson; death can be life and vice-versa. In spite of physical pain and a philandering husband, Frida inspires her students to live life with passion.
"Marian Licha portrays the true essence of each character in Frida Vice-Versa. Her performance is stunning and cleverly approached."
