In his delightfully nutty almost-one-woman bio-musicals, Ryan Raftery has perfectly skewered gay icons Martha Stewart, Anna Winter, Calvin Klein, and Andy Cohen (as well as 21st century villainess Ivanka Trump). Now he’s taking on one the 21st centuries most intriguing legends, Andy Warhol.

In the upcoming “The Trial of Andy Warhol,” the infamous pop artist will be seen “on trial in the afterlife for being responsible for the creation of influencer culture, Bravo TV and our social-media addiction in the hopes of finding our own individual 15 minutes of fame,” Raftery told Page Six.
With the pandemic having shut theaters in New York, he said:
“The opening night is uncertain, but we are planning for a late fall bow at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater.”
