“Bakersfield Mist” is about a “hard-drinking broad” (Maude, portrayed by Lee Ann Manley) who buys a painting for $3 as a joke, because she thinks it’s so ugly. Someone suggests it could be a real Jackson Pollock. When a snooty art appraiser (Lionel, portrayed by Paul Sulzman) is dispatched to her trailer to authenticate the painting, the sparks and Jack Daniels start flying, as the two of them face off in a hilarious argument over what’s real and what’s not. The bottom line: Is it a hundred million-dollar missing Pollock or a fake? Directed by Susan Kelejian.
Runs for four weekends starting May 4th.
