Artemisia — A World Premiere Play

A celebration of art, women in art, and a lesson that history is bound to repeat itself, in art as in life. 

Artemisia Gentileschi changed the history of art for women yet is widely unknown outside (and even inside) the art community. Her experiments with the color palette created “Gentileschi amber” and developed new ways to color and fix paintings. 

She was the first woman to be allowed to attend art school, become a sponsored artist of Cosimo DeMedici, paint scenes of Biblical violence, and try a man for rape.

She also faced the same struggles that women artists face today. She fought against sexism and sexual aggression, plagiarism, and repression. Her paintings reflect her violent struggle against her time.

Artemisia is a wild ride of fact and fantasy that takes the audience through the canals, cathedrals, and studios of Venice with malingering artists, murderous courtesans, and malicious barmaids. READ MORE>>

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre

The Waterfront South Theatre is situated just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, this gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on this corner.

Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner of Camden “home”.
