“Miracles happen. Don’t they?”
TimeLine Theatre Company presents the Chicago premiere of Bakersfield Mist. A provocative and hilarious look at what makes art—and people—authentic. Maude has bought the ugliest thrift store painting she could get her hands on as a gag gift. When she’s told it might be an undiscovered work by the famed Jackson Pollock, she invites a world-class art expert to decide if it’s a forgery or the real thing, worth millions.
Inspired by a true story, Bakersfield Mist is “a perfect marriage of emotion and ideas that is rare indeed” (Los Angeles Times).
