Standing on stage, his back to the audience while contemplating Andy Warhol’s 10 silk-screen prints of 20th-century Jews, Josh Kornbluth says, “I don’t get it.” And thus begins his humorous and penetrating take on the ten cultural luminaries depicted on the pop artist’s controversial 1980 series, including Albert Einstein, George Gershwin, Golda Meir, the Marx Brothers and Gertrude Stein. As always, be prepared for Kornbluth’s rigorous and irreverent mix of autobiography, music, philosophy and improvisation.
