LACC Recommends: Frida a self portrait: extraordinary one-woman tour de force

June 7, 2023

This event took place at the O’Reilly Theater, 621 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s legendary life unfolds before us in this exquisite, muscular retelling of the ways she wielded her creative genius to survive a debilitating accident, to embody a magnificent parade of historical moments, and to transcend her passionate marriage to Diego Rivera.

Terrific and turbulent, she lived boldly, loved wildly, and painted prolifically to see herself and the world around her more clearly. With stunning stagecraft and irresistible charm, Brazilian American writer and performer Vanessa Severo illuminates Frida’s story with her own experience, unearthing powerful common ground between them and inviting us to experience Kahlo’s rare genius firsthand.
