Jonathan Waxman is a hugely successful artist. He's been profiled in Vanity Fair and receives exorbitant prices for his works, sight unseen. But a visit with his original muse and lover causes him to reevaluate the success that now controls him.
Donald Margulies' Obie Award-winning drama explores the artist's role in society, the commerce of art, and the complications of love and memory.
"This Obie Award-winning play is one of the best entries in L.A. Theatre Works' impressive catalog." (AudioFile)

Another winner by the playwright who brought us the 5 star projects Collected Stories and Dinner w Friends. The themes in Sight Unseen will likely appeal more to an older audience with some life experience under its belt. Still, there's plenty here for anyone who appreciates finely crafted theatre. I've given it 4 versus 5 stars because there are some lapses into unbelievability that were unnecessary (and Don is capable of doing better). The project, nonetheless, remains strong.
