About This Show

In Donald Margulies’ Sight Unseen Jonathan Waxman is a celebrated American artist who yearns for something more in life. When he travels to England for his first European retrospective, he decides to visit his original muse and former lover, Patricia, whom he selfishly dismissed fifteen years earlier. Waxman, whose work commands astronomical prices "sight unseen," wants to rediscover the passion and creativity that once fueled his work. But the visit – along with a troubling interview with a German art critic who questions his motives as a Jewish painter – leads to an unexpected crisis of identity. This incisive and humorous Pulitzer Prize-nominated and Obie Award-winning play deals with race, religion, and the meaning of art.
