About Frida Libre:

After years of meticulously studying the life and work of the iconic artist, Martínez wrote a script that delves into Frida’s success, politics, art, sexuality and the years of physical pain that followed a trolley accident.

She also explores the complex and complicated relationship between Frida and muralist Diego Rivera, who was 20 years older than her when they first married.

“There have been two great accidents in my life,” Frida once said. “One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.”

Frida Libre offers audiences a reflection with a historical perspective on forgiveness, the de-intellectualization of art, sex, love, freedom and political thought.

Tickets are $30-$60, and available at
