Has anyone seen KAMMER/KAMMER by William Forsythe?

Any information is appreciated but I would like to know specifically upon whom the rock star is based.

I saw Kammer/Kammer last Saturday night, as a matter of fact. It was fabulous - nothing like anything I've ever seen before. There's a pretty good review of it here (good meaning I agree with it)

I don't know about the rock star - maybe there's more if you read the book some of the text in the performance comes from.

I was worried that it would be totally pretentious postmodern nonsense, but it was done so well it worked and gave me a lot to think about.

Are you going to go and see it?

Thanks Kate B. I have friends who were amazed at how good it was. They said the audience ate it up.
