A Lost Leonardo

About the Production

His artistic career is in ruins, and Leonardo da Vinci is renouncing his fickle Muse for good. Taking a “vow of utility,” he turns to scientific exploration and accepts an appointment with Cesare Borgia, the powerful and ruthless leader. Together they will build technological wonders to change the world. But the catastrophic potential of Leonardo’s creation may be more than he could have foreseen. A Lost Leonardo imagines da Vinci in turmoil, torn between two identities and two passions. In this scintillating depiction of da Vinci at his funniest, award-winning playwright David Davalos asks what price we’re willing to pay for the pursuit of knowledge.

“Davalos has fun playing with the elevated language from a lofty long-ago—and bringing it down to earth and close to home with humorous catch phrases and cultural allusions that a modern audience can embrace as its own.”
