The Artistic Home's 2008/2009 season continues its exploration of the artist in society with the rarely produced Modigliani by Dennis McIntyre. The second production in Artistic Home's Mainstage series, Modigliani will be directed by Artistic Director Kathy Scambiatterra and will feature Artistic Home co-founder and Associate Director, John Mossman in the title role. Modigliani opens February 8th and runs through March 22, 2009 at The Artistic Home's new residence, 3914 N. Clark Street in Chicago. Performances are Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm. Previews are February 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th at 8:00pm. Single tickets are $25 on Fridays and Saturdays and $23 on Thursdays and Sundays. Preview tickets are $15. Student/Senior tickets are available for $20 on Thursdays and Sundays only, starting February 12th. For tickets, call 1-866-811-4111 or visit www.theartistichome.org. Set in the Left Bank of Paris, 1916, Modigliani chronicles a critical 72 hour period for an artistic genius on the verge of fame. A rival of Picasso, painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani turned Montparnasse upside down with his legendary excesses and talent, while spawning a circle of friends and lovers that worshipped him like a rock star. The Parisian posterchild for the free-wheeling lifestyle of 1900s Bohemia, Modi - as he was known to his friends - filled his days with drugs, liquor, sex, art and the company of his many colorful compatriots. Yet, as he began to feel the weight of his age and the increasing pressure to produce, Modi soon came face-to-face with the limits of his own mortality and the realities of living in a world where product holds more value than process and love can't hold a candle to the prospect of fame.
