From Jana Petersen
This past Wednesday evening POP! opened at The Studio Theater. A musical murder-mystery extravaganza, POP! takes a peek inside the artistic revelry of Andy Warhol’s infamous Factory. More specifically, its function outside of the artistic whims and manifestations of post-modernism (odds and ends collected from the street, interior covered entirely in silver paint): in other words, the Factory’s alternate role as home to orgies, parties and excessive drug use.
Tickets for POP! average about $40, and the show will run through August 7. Have you seen POP! Are you planning on it? Tell us what you think!
