This Big Slit

Viva was played by my friend Juliet. Her character was dazed and confused, a role that came easily to her. Why should she be any different than the rest of the cast? Directions were changing in the middle of performances. No one knew what they were supposed to do.

Valerie’s love for Viva is unrequited. But she pursues her anyway with a fool’s hope that she can change her thinking.

Thoughts do not go very deep with Viva. If it doesn’t involve her image, she can’t be bothered.

When Valerie finally understands the score, she identifies Warhol as the source of all her woes. Emboldened by her stirring aria I a Woman, she decides to clean house and off Andy.

One thought on “This Big Slit

  1. This is a classic. Valerie’s closing aria: one nine six eight…… should be recorded. Too bad Broadway is now retread Hollywood. Do you have the copyright? Dale

    Oh, and yes, Paul Morrisey is absolutely perfect. Jim did his research!
