New York, 1984.
Fifty-six-year-old Andy Warhol’s star is falling.
Jean-Michel Basquiat is the new wonder-kid taking the art world by storm. When Basquiat agrees to collaborate with Warhol on a new exhibition, it soon becomes the talk of the city.
As everyone awaits the ‘greatest exhibition in the history of modern art’, the two artists embark on a journey, both artistic and deeply personal, that re-draws both their worlds.
Written by Anthony McCarten, “The Collaboration,” explores the relationship between the painters Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
In its US premiere, Manhattan Theater Club presents “The Collaboration,” at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater on Broadway. Previews begin Nov. 29, 2022, and an opening night scheduled for Dec. 20, 2022.
Warhol. Basquiat. Electric, eccentric, polar opposites … together, for the first time in the most unlikely partnership the art world has ever seen. Manhattan Theater Club presents “The Collaboration.”
