About this show

A humorous and penetrating take on ten Jewish luminaries as painted by Andy Warhol in his controversial 1980 series, Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century. DC favorite Josh Kornbulth considers the radical aesthetic of the pop art enigma who was commissioned to paint Albert Einstein, George Gershwin, Golda Meir and the Marx Brothers. In wrestling with Warhol's motives and techniques, Kornbluth learns something about his own suppressed religious identity and the spiritual dimensions of Warhol's art. Josh Kornbluth is a comedic autobiographical monologist based in the San Francisco bay area who has toured internationally, written and starred in several feature films, and hosted "The Josh Kornbluth Show" for two season. In 2008, he performed his hit show Citizen Josh at Arena Stage. The New York Daily News says "Kornbluth is a writer with great originality and depth and a spell-binding performer. What more can you expect from an evening at the theater?"
