On Sunday, September 22, Le Corbusier will be "live" on stage at New York City's Bowery Poetry Club in a one-man show, "Le Corbusier's Women." The "architect of the century" and "Picasso of architecture," Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is played by Charles Knevitt, former architecture critic of The Times (London). He also wrote the show.
"Le Corbusier’s Women" tells the story of the most prominent women in the architect’s life: his mother, his wife, his mistress of 30 years, and a score of other lovers including, allegedly, Josephine Baker, Mitzi Solomon, Minette de Silva, Marilyn Monroe, and British showgirl Christine Keeler, who brought down the British Government in the 1960s.
A blockbuster show of the architect's work remains on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York until September 23.
