Musas proposes a fictional crossroad between two artists, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and Sylvia Plath (1932-1963), in which they share the most intimate and passionate moments of their lives. While this interchange never actually occurred, the audience is present to confront the intensity of these colorful artists. Important moments in both of their careers and lives are shared as well as their unique relationship with art, love and death. This rich dialogue between Frida and Sylvia allows the audience to learn biographical details about both of these women’s lives and share their respective life journeys interwoven with incredible talent, passion, and pain.
