27 Rue de Fleurus - My Life with Gertrude

0 Male, 5 Female

Ted Sod & Lisa Koch Price: $9.99

Unlike most of the stage works about Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, 27 Rue de Fleurus is told from Alice's point of view

Gertrude grows tired of Alice's lack of panache for telling her perspective of their story and attempts to hijack the play as only the author of such lines as "sugar is not a vegetable" can

But Alice has secrets to share with the audience that silence the famously verbose Gertrude

This celebrated couple confronts each other about love, marriage, jealousy, genius and a few other delicious topics while Pablo Picasso, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mabel Dodge, Sylvia Beach and even Jean Harlow drop by for a visit

“27 Rue de Fleurus gets its sweetness from a genuine love of its subject, the “marriage” of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. The music is well handled by John Bell; and the all-female cast sings excellently” ~ The Village Voice
