Description

book and lyrics by Ted Sod

music and lyrics by Lisa Koch

directed by Frances Hill

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.
