Queers take back history… and look damn hot while doing it. Botticelli in the Fire by Jordan Tannahill, senior thesis work of Ryan Kirby ‘22 and Madison Middleton ‘22.5, is an extravagant and edgy queering of Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli and his iconic painting, The Birth of Venus. Tannahill creates a radical space where queers are no longer on the periphery of history but take center stage in a story that will leave you laughing, moaning, maybe even shedding a few tears. Featuring the Renaissance, 80s flair, and modern gay culture, this is college theatre as you’ve never seen it before. Tickets will be available at go/inthefire.
