Josh Kornbluth, the renowned playwright, performer and former host of KQED's "The Josh Kornbluth Show," brings us his new one-man show, Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews? for two nights only! An icon of Bay Area performance, Kornbluth based his show on the Contemporary Jewish Museum's exhibition Warhol's Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered. The show offered a humorous and penetrating take on the ten cultural luminaries like Albert Einstein, George Gershwin, Golda Meir, the Marx Brothers, and Gertrude Stein painted by Andy Warhol in his famous 1980 series, Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century. Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews? is also an investigation into the nature of contemporary identity, the complex texture of modern Jewish life, and the limits of biographical categories in an era of constant artistic and personal reinvention. Be prepared for Kornbluth's rigorous and irreverent mix of autobiography, music, philosophy and improvisation.
