Erik Jensen and Krysta Rodriguez on costarring in this new Broadway play
The real-life creative relationship between art superstars Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat is the focus of The Collaboration, but playwright Anthony McCarten adds two other pivotal characters to his canvas: famed Swiss art dealer Bruno Bischofberger, who brings the legends together, and Basquiat's girlfriend Maya, who understands the troubled upstart better than anyone. Although the actors playing these parts, Erik Jensen and Krysta Rodriguez, don't share any scenes together, they have a lot in common offstage, including a passion for art, amusing anecdotes about their costars Paul Bettany and Jeremy Pope, and harrowing health battles that changed their perspectives as people and performers. Join TDF this Friday, January 20 at 1 p.m. ET on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel as we bring these stage veterans together for a candid chat about collaborating on The Collaboration. Captions will be available.
The Collaboration tickets are frequently available at our TKTS by TDF Discount Booths.
