"David J: Silver for Gold (The Odyssey of Edie Sedgwick) Part delirious one-woman show, part avant-garde rock concert replete with eerie video imagery, this production written and directed by David J?co-founder of the influential British bands, Bauhaus and Love & Rockets?finds new mythic dimensions in the rise and eventual drugs and alcohol-fueled crash of Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick. This mesmerizing performance considers the charismatic and misunderstood 1960s icon as a modern-day Persephone: Queen of the underworld to Warhol's Hades. Throughout her travails, a horse-headed wounded healer guides Edie to eventual transcendence. David J leads the four-piece Silver for Gold Band through a melancholy and droll song cycle that comments on episodes in the doomed star?s life, while also nodding to the music of the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan. The production design, for its part, evokes Edie?s room in the Chelsea Hotel as?what else??a fog-enshrouded purgatory."
