Music by Dana P. Rowe
Book and Lyrics by Michael Aman
The musical, Frida, based on the incredible true story of beloved Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, charts her rise above physical disabilities and the male-dominated art world to win the love and admiration of famed muralist Diego Rivera, become the artistic soul of her country and create art that would forever change the way we see the world.
This demo recording features Doreen Montalvo as ‘Nana’, Lauren Wiley as ‘Mother’, and Veronica Vazquez-Jackson as ‘La Pelona’. FRIDA explores the world of magic realism weaving art and dance and music together to tell the larger-than-life story of the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo.
Frida Kahlo is surrounded by the three forces of her life: her past (Nana), her present (Mother), and her future (La Pelona/Death). The three women call to Frida as Frida’s self-portrait comes to life.
