Final Week: First Floor Theater Presents Botticelli in The Fire at The Den Theatre (Through November 5th, 2022)

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.
