Michelangelo's Models, by Robert Patrick
Rome, 1508. POPE JULIUS II has summoned famous artist MICHELANGELO to finish the papal tomb. Michelangelo is not happy about it, believing that Julius is a mere pretender as a patron of the arts in comparison to the Florentine Lorenzo the Magnificent.

The sculptor's return is less than pleasant, his former model TONDO having taken to whoring, the Architect BRAMANTE is scheming to gain power and patronage and steal Michelangelo's limelight, the pretty and sanguine RAPHAEL might upstage him in talent. Not all is bad though, as the deranged SANDRO and stately LEONARDO present Michelangelo with the gift of youth: from Sandro the simple IGNUDO; from Leonardo the philosophical noble TOMMASO. All the while the alluring and crafty SIMONETTA influences events to her own ends.

With all of these passionate characters in play, Robert Patrick ("Kennedy's Children," "Hello Bob," "Nice Girl," and dozens more) has the perfect vehicle to explore his great themes: the necessary(?) dichotomy between the sacred and the profane, the earthly--and earthy--wellsprings of the greatest art, the mutual inspiration of talent and beauty. This deeply researched "historical fantasia in three acts" is profound, sexy, and constantly funny.
