Event Information

portrait of edna lewisThe impact of the late Southern chef Edna Lewis on American cuisine—and generations of people—cannot be overstated. Inspired by Hilton Als’ childhood recollections of admiring Lewis from afar during her years in New York City, Edna Lewis is a meditative love letter to her by a celebrated writer. Featuring the sensational Helga Davis (CPA artist-in-residence who starred in Als’ Lives of the Performers at CURRENT ArtSpace +Studio last year) as “Edna” ruminating on her storied life and acclaimed performer Justin Hicks as a young Hilton, this intimate work-in-progress is set against pivotal moments in American history. Written by Hilton Als, directed by Tea Alagic and featuring Helga Davis and Justin Hicks. Feb. 6, 7:30 pm, Feb. 7, 8:30 at CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio.
