Imagine walking the streets of New York City, seeing the sights, hearing the rhythms of the city, jostling through the vibrant press of life. This play is like doing just that, except you're taking it all in through the mind of visual artist Joseph Cornell. Peer into his imagination which includes cameos of Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Charles Boyer, Hedy Lamarr, Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren, Henri-Robert-Marcel Duchamp, and Arshile Gorky! Flashes of wonder and unexpected juxtapositions articulate the moments in life that are truly worth living.
