Now that another work week has begun, how will you cope? The Fort’s contemporary theater troupe Amphibian Productions comes to the rescue. Monday (February 8), check out their 7pm staged reading of Lanie Robertson’s “Woman Before a Glass” at the Modern. This one woman show concerns Peggy Guggenheim, the wealthy New York art collector (her daddy drowned with the Titanic in 1912; her uncle established the Guggenheim Foundation) whose dear friends included Cocteau, Picasso, Kandinsky, Duchamp, Brancusi, Dali, and Pollock. She also had an affair with Samuel Beckett, which sounds like more fun that it probably was.
Then on Tuesday (February 9), join the ‘Phibs and their friends for February’s ”Celebrity Bartending at Grace” event. Amphibian company members Carman Lacivita, Jonathan Fielding, and Elizabeth Mason will be your mixologists 5-7pm. Proceeds go to support local theater. When it comes to pouring alcohol, actors have tricky wrists, or so the legend goes – their highballs will flatten you like a California rock slide.
