Painted Bread (the story of Frida Kahlo)

by Melissa Lucero McCarl
January 31 – February 23, 2014

Experience the passion of art.

Long before the critically acclaimed film Frida brought the compelling life of painter Frida Kahlo before the general public, local audiences were thrilled by Denver actress and playwright Melissa Lucero McCarl’s Painted Bread. In it, we see the artist’s life through a series of self portraits which dramatically capture her boisterous sense of humor, love of Mexican culture and passion for painting. Kahlo’s works often combined affection and humor, sadness and sarcasm, the intimate and the collective. McCarl’s play echoes that quite brilliantly.

“…feeds the soul and spirit with powerful inspiration.” – Colorado Backstage
