About The Play :
Muse 90401 explores the relationship between artists and their inspiration, or muses, and how it effects their work. The story explores the life of a Muse who has worked with artists such as Tolstoy, Shakespeare and Di Vinci to name a few. Despite her efforts to keep Anna Karenina and Cleopatra alive and to get Mona Lisa to smile, she is called before the “court” to defend her failures. Her deepest desire is to be human, and she explains through dialoge and song why. She is accompanied by a live musician who is also her attorney in the case, and the audience is her jury.
