The Slave Who Loved Caviar by Ismael Reed
Playwright Ishmael Reed uses satire to explore aspects of American culture and history overlooked by others. His "The Slave Who Loved Caviar" is a theatrical Investigation into the relationship between Jean-Michel Basquiat and the art world, challenging the notion that Basquiat was merely Andy Warhol’s "mascot." The take-no-prisoners satire digs into the exploitation of Basquiat by art world vampires. Directed by Reed's frequent collaborator, Carla Blank, it's the latest work for the stage by the man The New Yorker called "America’s most fearless satirist."
