Performance Network: Peggy Guggenheim comes alive on stage
Until Sept. 6, Performance Network is staging Woman Before a Glass, a one-woman play by Lanie Robertson. In the much praised PN production, Naz Edwards plays art collector Peggy Guggenheim who tells her life story, covering the death of her father on the Titanic and saving art from the Nazi invasion of Paris. She also talks about her famous lovers, including Miro, Dali and Picasso. If you want to read about Guggenheim (1898-1979), try Peggy: The Wayward Guggenheim or her autobiography Out of This Century: Confessions of an Art Addict.
