Borgia Infami Officially in the Books!

Last weekend marked the open and close of the Two- Day World Premiere of Borgia Infami by Harold Blumenfeld. Performed at Washington University’s Edison Theater, Borgia Infami was full of drama and dark deeds committed by the infamous Borgia clan, specifically Rodrigo, who later became the brilliant and corrupt Pope Alexander VI; his son Cesare, whose ruthless pursuit of power is immortalized in Macchiavelli’s writings;  and especially Rodrigo’s daughter Lucrezia, alleged poisoner of the family’s enemies.
