Additional Notes:
"From the age of three until the age of six I enjoyed a rather delightful sexual relationship with my father....I wish it had not happened as it sexualized me a such a young age and robbed me of my childhood" so begins Becoming Michelangelo: Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict, written and designed by Michelangelo Alasa', a walk through, theatrical art installation filled with video, found objects and words. Alasa' shares his personal journey through Confessions, a snapshot of his queer coming-of-age experience during the 1960s. When he did not find love at home, he found it in the arms of Barbra Streisand who provided the soundtrack to his life; Gertrude Stein who opened the world of art to him as well as Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Trman Capote, Tennessee Williams and Serge Diaghilev among others who inspired him. Cathartic in nature, this performative exhibition reminds us of our deepest secrets, darkest longings, and biggest triumphs. "The true stories of writer/director/producer Michelangelo Alasa', the experience is voyeuristic and thrilling in a way that illusory theater often cannot emulate. Confessions is a treat for an adult audience who appreciate truth-seeking, an emotionally naked look at a skilled artist willing to expose both his greatest assets and most raw relationships." Shane Reader "Michelangelo Alasa's projections are mesmerizing....His memorabilia from Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and others who suffered while inspiring the world is fascinating to see on the way in and out of the performance space. This review does not come close to how it feels to see the show, which is a challenging but constructive experience." Ed Malin NYTheatre.com There is a 4 ticket limit per person
