Monday Night Special – Dear Edvard
September 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm
Love story, art history biopic, psychological exploration and family drama, DEAR EDVARD is a new music-theatre piece about the life and loves of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Set in the hospital room at Dr. Jacobsen’s Clinic for Nervous Disorders and Alcoholism where the artist committed himself in 1908, Munch’s young nurse, now elderly, confesses her long-ago passion for her famous patient, and transports us back to the beginnings of psychoanalysis, sexual liberation, and the birth of modern art.
