Bridge Street Theatre Presents “My Unspeakable Confessions” on Sunday
Audiences are in for a rare treat when Bridge Street Theatre favorite Roxanne Fay (The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, Dream Child, Upon This Rock, Home Fires Burning) returns to Catskill at 2pm on Sunday (May 6) for a one-time-only performance of Heather L. Jones’ My Unspeakable Confessions: Gala Dali Declines to Explain Herself.
Originally commissioned by the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, and first performed there by Ms. Fay in 2011, this dazzling one-woman show (told with some reluctance) exposes the secrets, fears, promises and lies of the Russian-born wife and muse of the crazed Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali. Dali created exquisite and sensual tributes to her throughout his life, making her the central figure in much of his work. But as Dali became more and more of a public personality, Gala receded further and further into the shadows, keeping her mystery intact. This play presents ‘her’ version of her own story, as she might have agreed to tell it – as a reading of the Tarot.
The play will be presented in the Bridge Street Theatre’s Speakeasy. Tickets are $20 general admission.
