Peggy Guggenheim Comes to Life in Lanie Robertson’s “Woman Before a Glass” @ Bridge Street Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]
Hang onto your hats! Actress Judy Rosenblatt is Peggy Guggenheim in Woman Before a Glass, a play by Lanie Robertson, coming to Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre for three performances only this weekend (August 10-12).
Peggy Guggenheim was someone who did exactly what she wanted to do, fairly unusual for a woman born in 1898. A wealthy New Yorker (although definitely not as rich as some of the other Guggenheims), she married twice and had children but devoted most of her adult life to her modern-art collection and to love affairs, frequently with the men who created the artworks she collected. She opened her heart (and her bed) to some of the great artistic minds of the twentieth century, claiming to have had affairs with Samuel Beckett, Yves Tanguy and numerous others.
