Leonardo da Vinci, Self Portrait
Leonardo da Vinci, Self Portrait

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Leonardo da Vinci is known as a thinker, an inventor and of course a great artist. But the playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett wanted to get past the myth, and explore the man. Bennett's latest play for the Plan B Theatre Company is called Di Esperienza, and while it takes on the moments of Da Vinci's brilliance it also raises questions of self-doubt that seemed to plague him throughout his life.

  • Plan B Theatre Company's Di Esperienza runs April 3 - 19 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. For tickets, call 801-355-ARTS (2787) or click here
