This weekend, the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) presents Fridamania!, a celebration of the life of renowned artist Frida Kahlo. The event will showcase scenes from the new Broadway musical about Kahlo, Viva la Vida, which was written by Rita Ortez-Provost, Arturo Mesquite and Alan Goodson. There will be a screening of the PBS documentary The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo, as well as a dinner featuring some of Frida's own recipes from the cookbook Frida's Fiestas, prepared by Las Tarascas Restaurant, including chiles rellenos, papas en salsa verde, and tamales Oaxaqueños. Tickets are $55 for Front Row Seating, $45 for Preferred Seating, and $35 General Seating (MOLAA members save $10 per ticket.) Copies of the documentary on DVD and the cookbook will be available for purchase as well.

Fridamania! at the MOLAA: Saturday, June 25th, 6:00 p.m.
628 Alamitos Avenue, Long Beach (562) 437-1689
