Frida & Diego, the musical about Mexico's most colorful couple

Book and Lyrics by Adair Seldon
Music by Keiko Takeda

Frida & Diego, the world’s most colorful coupleMexican painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera are passionate artists, idealistic Communists and eternal soulmates. But Kahlo’s physical suffering from a streetcar accident and Rivera’s constant philandering create a canvas of high drama, fueling their tumultuous marriage and brilliant careers.

Set against the vivid backdrop of post-revolutionary Mexico, as well as vibrant scenes in New York, Detroit and Paris, Frida & Diego is filled with fascinating characters that include Henry Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Leon Trotsky, Pablo Picasso and other big-name contemporaries of the day.

Combining elements of magic realism, ribald humor and deep, emotional poignancy, the show delves into the multi-hued escapades of this colorful couple -- their love and obsession with each other, their work, their politics and their shocking extramarital exploits.

Frida & Diego has 20 unforgettable songs, from lively Latin rhythms to haunting Broadway ballads.
