John Patrick Shanley

THE STORY: The play chronicles the life of the original "Renaissance Man," Benvenuto Cellini, the sixteenth-century Italian sculptor and man-about-town. Celliniís masterwork is the magnificent Perseus, the creation of which is the playís centerpiece. As he works, he dictates his memoirs, letting us into his life: We learn of his days in Paris and Rome, and of his beloved Florence; we also get a glimpse of the artistís bravado--he snubbed the patronage of Pope Paolo and was promptly thrown in jail; weíre given accounts of his love life; and weíre also teased about a couple of juicy murders. The play closes with the unveiling of the Perseus and leaves the audience touched by Celliniís genius.
