China's first all-female percussion group, the Red Poppy Ladies, reinterpret the beloved folk tale Mulan. The story of a legendary heroine who disguised herself as a man to take her father's place in battle was also turned into a famed Disney animated film in 1998. But the Red Poppy Ladies' version mixes kung fu with traditional drumming as a backdrop to this inspiring tale of courage and family loyalty. Famed for their appearance at the Beijing Olympics, these professionally trained musicians have performed throughout the world. Learn More

27 rue de Fleurus is a new musical derived from the imagination of Alice B. Toklas. Alice tries to set the record straight about being Gertrude Stein’s “wife” for nearly 40 years.
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.
