Now – 7/24: LEMPIKA

Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka is a celebrity icon of modernity, famed both for her stunning portraits of jazz era society and for her unapologetic, daring lifestyle. Fleeing political upheaval in St. Petersburg to the glamour of 1920s Paris, Tamara uses her raw talent and relentless ambition to claw her way from penniless refugee to in-demand portraitist. Her world is upended when she meets Rafaela, a free spirit from the city slums, who introduces Tamara to a new world of decadence and passion. Torn between her new muse and her husband, and fighting to leave her mark on an ever-changing world, Tamara must discover the depths of her own strength to survive.

Madonna and Barbra Streisand are counted among her fervent collectors – now, the Broadway-bound musical Lempicka explores Tamara’s remarkable life with a powerhouse cast, sumptuous staging and a thrilling pop-infused score. Get your ticket today for this breath-taking musical about a woman ahead of her era – and an artist whose time has finally come.
