Andy Warhol and the cast of Pork

N.p. N.p., 1971. Vintage borderless photograph of Andy Warhol and the cast of the 1971 play. Holograph ink annotation on the verso crediting photographer Jack Mitchell, identifying the subjects, and giving a date of "5/71."

Based on tape-recorded telephone conversations between Andy Warhol and Brigid Berlin about her family’s private life, the play opened at LaMama ETC in New York City on May 5, 1971 and ran for two weeks before transferring to the Roundhouse Theatre in London where it ran from August 2 to August 28, 1971.

Produced by Ira Gale and directed by Anthony Ingrassia, the cast included Jayne County, Tony Zanetta, and Cherry Vanilla. "Pork" proved to be a defining counter-cultural event, which would have a significant influence on the evolution of the glam, glitter and punk movements. The London production in particular was instrumental in the transformation of David Bowie’s visual style and stage presentation.
