‘Botticelli in the Fire’ – Ends June 24
The story of early Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli is modernized in typical Woolly Mammoth-style this summer. Botticelli is dedicated to life’s pleasures, but while painting The Birth of Venus, his lifestyle is tested by a new populist priest in Lorenzo de Medici’s Florence. Sandro is left to choose between his work and the life of his apprentice, one Leonardo Da Vinci. Filled with drama, style and allusions modern politics, Botticelli in the Fire will captivate audiences throughout its run.
