Kahlo play extended for Grove’s record run

'Goodbye, My Friduchita' beyond 140th performance

MIAMI — A play about acclaimed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was extended Friday beyond its 140th performance, making it the longest-running show in the history of the Coconut Grove Playhouse.

Performance dates of “Goodbye, My Friduchita” had already been extended and could be again if demand is sustained, playhouse spokeswoman Cece Shantzek said.

Shantzek said in a statement the play was originally scheduled to close Jan. 18, but it will now run until April 12.

The play was written by Miami playwright Dolores Sendler and is directed by Barbara Lowery. It recounts Kahlo’s flamboyant lifestyle when married to Diego Rivera, her numerous affairs, an early childhood bout of polio and a tragic bus accident in which she sustained horrific injuries.

The Coconut Grove Playhouse, one of Miami’s older buildings (built in 1927), is in its 42nd season.
