Review On Frida - Stroke of Passion


Avatar

Frida, Stroke of Passion plays out like a sort of fever dream as the tequila swilling, pill popping Frida Kahlo remembers her many lovers – most of them, but of course, women. Except, notably, her relations with Mexican Marxist muralist Diego Rivera. As depicted onstage, their relationship was stormy. In fact, in real life they married, divorced and then remarried. Diego and Frida had the kind of romance where the only thing more unbearable for them than being apart was being together...
