The world premiere of Collaboration: Warhol & Basquiat, a new play written by and starring Tony Award nominee Calvin Levels (Open Admissions), will be presented at HERE's mainstage theatre from December 2-22. Tony Award nominee Lonny Price (Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill) directs.

The play depicts the artistic relationship between two of the 20th century's greatest artists, capturing a historic art-world moment as the iconic pop artist Andy Warhol and the neo-expressionist painter Jean-Michel Basquiat attempt to navigate the terrain of art and fame while collaborating on a joint series of paintings.

Levels leads the cast as Jean-Michel Basquiat, with Ira Denmark and Frank van Putten joing him as Andy Warhol and European art dealer Rudolfo Happesberger, respectively.
