The Oldenburg Suite

Lyrics by James Feinberg; Music by Matthew Dylan Rose

Family is an art.

The Oldenburg Suite is a sung-through musical about twelve tumultuous years in the lives of sculptor Claes Oldenburg, his wife, artist and art historian Coosje van Bruggen, and his brother Richard, Director of the Museum of Modern Art. A saga of seventies self-invention narrated by Andy Warhol, the show follows Claes as he struggles to overcome his audience's preconceptions, Coosje as she becomes an artist in her own right, and Richard as he fights to lend stability to the strike-rattled MoMA.
