Photo Coverage: Opening Night of MODOTTI

Last night, Pascal Productions presented the World Premiere of MODOTTI, In life, love and politics. The play, written and directed by Wendy Beckett features Thom Christopher, Jack Gwaltney, Stacey Linnartz, Andy Paris, Dee Pelletier, Alysia Reiner, Josh Tyson, and Mark Zeisler.

MODOTTI opened last night and will perform a four-week limited Off-Broadway Engagement through July 3 at 410 West 42nd St.

MODOTTI is the story of photographer, silent film actress and ultimately activist and communist subversive, Tina Modotti. Sleek and sensuous, yet as dangerous as a tiger, she tore through the male dominated political forums almost as fast as she tore through her lovers.

Modotti fled to Mexico lured by the revolution and artistic excitement. Accompanied by her lover, American photographer, Edward Weston, she took on the challenge of a culture undergoing rapid change. Relishing in her new found freedom, her contemporaries were muralist, Diego Rivera, and Cuban revolutionary, Julio Mella.

Taking on controversial issues is a young person's adventure, one that is bound to have dire consequences.
