Tickets and more about the play
She has drunk deeply of life, and she keeps on drinking. She is Lou Salomé. What matters tonight is her unquenchable passion. A recently dumped lover has just murdered himself. “My way has grown dark,” she says. “I come here for light.” With the audience as her witness, she peels back the layers of love and loss to the meaning and the beauty at their core. She conjures back to life her lost God, her lost loves, the lost companions of her soul, the geniuses Nietzsche and Rilke. She blows on the dying embers. Once more they glow.
In this fierce and passionate staging of John Carter’s lyrical script, actress Elena McGhee and director Tina Benko reincarnate Lou’s amazing spirit and set her loose. The theater has limited seating. You can’t escape her. You won’t forget her.
"Human life—indeed all life—is poetry. We are works of art, but we are not the artist." Lou Salomé
