Josh Kornbluths Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews? is less about the famous pop artist or about Jews than it is about love and art. Somewhere in there, Kornbluth wedges a little history of Warhol, but his monologue, which he wrote and has been performing all over the place (right now at the Herberger Theater Center in an Actors Theatre production), is more than an artist bio. Its another rambling autobiographical essay that yanks together real-life characters, such as Warhol and Kornbluths father Paul, with peculiar personas (Rabbi Menachem Creditor is a favorite) who, in this case, are linked with Warhols controversial 1980 series Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century.
There isnt much more to be said other than Go see this; you wont be sorry. Tell them Holly Woodlawn sent you.
