Look out below, because The Philly Fringe Festival is upon us. It's always hard to sift through the many amazing shows that will be unleashed all over us. Well, you're welcome, because I've found a good one - a really good one. "The Artists' Women" is a play written by accomplished newbie, Annie Such. She explains that she comes from a creative set of parents, her mother being an artist and her father being a musician. She has always been fascinated with how esteemed artists' loved-ones are affected, by living in the shadows.†
Such, 22, is originally from Texas and recently graduated from Philly's own UArts. She met with Jeffrey Hyman, the director and gushed to him that she wanted to do something for the Fringe Festival. †
"I met with Jeffrey Hyman the director, and I want to do something for the festival. We were shooting around ideas, and figured that this story needed to be written." said Such. As an actress herself, Annie realizes what goes into making the words on paper come to life.†
The play centers around famed-artist Rodin's wife, Camille Claudelle, who gets visited by famous artists' women. The theory behind Claudelle is that Rodin stole her work, which prompted her to go insane. †The play's most well-known star is Brendan Norton, 26, who grew up outside of Philly. † † This is Norton's first time performing in the Fringe, but he's no amateur. He's been acting all over the place, but he's extremely excited for this opportunity to take the stage in his hometown.†
The Artistsí Women†runs September 14 and 15 at 8:00 pm, September 15 and 16 at 4:30 pm, and September 16 at 11:00 am at Philadelphia Art Alliance, 251 South 18th Street. $15.
