“Judy Rosenblatt, starring in this revival, has the most important quality for the solo role: attitude…piercingly authentic.” The New York Times
“Judy Rosenblatt ably portrays Guggenheim, capturing her twisted charm and pathos.” Huffington Post

Starring: Judy Rosenblatt

“I decided this time instead of Peggy ‘doing Europe’ I wanted Europe to ‘do Peggy!’”

Peggy Guggenheim collected art — and artists. Married to Max Ernst, lover of Samuel Beckett, champion of Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso, Peggy’s love life was as colourful as her art collection. She moved to Venice in the late 1940s and quickly became one of its most glamorous, scandalous residents.

Lanie Robertson’s play brings Peggy’s remarkable story to life. Peggy’s passionate loyalties and prejudices changed the face of twentieth century art–but at what cost?

Austin Pendleton is one of New York’s most acclaimed directors. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his recent productions of Between Riverside and Crazy at The Atlantic Theatre. He directed the UK premiere of Detroit for the National Theatre.

Judy Rosenblatt is a stalwart of New York’s off-Broadway new writing scene and appeared in The Cobbler alongside Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buschemi and Ellen Barkin.
