O'KEEFFE!
by Lucinda McDermott, directed by Ouida White

A one-woman play exploring the art, life, and loves 
of Georgia O'Keeffe,
the iconic 20th Century American artist

Two forces shaped Georgia O’Keeffe as an artist and a woman: her passionate quest to find and express her artistic voice, and her tumultuous love affair and 31-year marriage to the revolutionary photographer and champion of the Modern Art Movement, Alfred Stieglitz. In O’KEEFFE!, Georgia–witty, irreverent and decades ahead of her time–shares revealing scenes from her challenging life as she asks the audience to help her decide whether her iconic place in Modern Art was shaped by “me or Stieglitz?”.
Starring:
Carolyn Wickwire

Comments


​"We saw O'Keefe in Santa Fe last night. Carolyn Wickwire navigated Georgia O'Keefe's emotional and artistic terrain with sensitivity, deep understanding while powerfully exposing her pain and passion. Exquisite performance. Not to be missed."

"I walked away with a font of not only facts but also an understanding of her emotional turmoil. I found myself lost in the experience of another’s interpretation of the artist and her art." 

"You could literally see the recognition of people saying 'We have something of real excellence here, here in Malakoff, here in this community center.' I could almost hear the breaths of incredulousness as the performance went on. 'This is so good, it’s something I’ll never forget.' 
   They’ll probably be telling this story to generations to come. With pride, because they were there. It was the right place because you made it so, and it truly made believers in a community of itself and its creative value. It’s something we, who live there, have been trying to get them to see. You did it in one night with no stage lights. It truly was a beautiful gift."


"AN ENGAGING ODYSSEY...Wickwire continues to be a fascinating, immensely talented actor; her interpretation in O'KEEFFE! is enchanting and provocative."

"Thank you so much for bringing ‘O'Keeffe’ to the Crowley Theater. Carolyn Wickwire was as delicious and full of surprise as a meal at Cochineal. As an artist and a woman I was inspired and moved. It is so hard to balance love and art and it was comforting to see the issues of a complex life simplified into a bite-sized meal. I will savor it for a long time to come.”

"My muse and I went to Marfa, TX last night to watch Carolyn Wickwire transform herself into Georgia O’Keeffe in the play titled ‘O’Keeffe’. Ms. Wickwire was mesmerizing in her metamorphoses and at times I felt I was watching and hearing the real Ms. O’Keeffe."

"We both wanted to thank you for producing and bringing O'Keeffe to Marfa. We had a great time! We both thought Carolyn Wickwire was really inspiring to watch. The set design was terrific. All a pleasure for fans of figurative art."
