In the 1840s, the French painter Jean-Francois Millet,was the most beloved European painter in the United States.

In this fictional reimagining, a group of starving artists stage the death of their mentor in an effort to increase the value of his work.

It's a welcome surprise that in its Broadway premiere, director Michael Blakemore, adapter David Ives and a spirited cast led by human whoopee cushion Norbert Leo Butz have turned this trifle into a ripely enjoyable confection. - Variety
