Sandro Botticelli was an Italian Renaissance painter. He was born in 1445 and died in 1510. In this play, he is commissioned by Lorenzo de Medici to paint a portrait of his wife, Venus. His apprentice, Leonardo da Vinci provides input and help with the painting.
Jordan Tannahill’s play isn’t for everyone. The plot was a bit thin and the characters weren’t developed enough for the audience to have an emotional connection.
The cast includes Neala Barron (Adding Machine) as Clarice, Yuchi Chiu (It’s a Wonderful Life), Andrew Cutler (Plano) as Medici, Christopher Meister, Alex Benito Rodriguez as Botticelli, John Payne as Da Vinci, and Jenece Upton.
