Speaking of SCAD

This weekend, beginning June 27th, To Do Productions opens its current presentation of Gertrude Stein and a Companion at the Marigny Theatre, 1030 Marigny Street.

The play begins shortly after the death of the formidable Gertrude Stein. As Alice B. Toklas returns alone to their home at 27 Rue de Fleurus, she finds the spirit of her partner still inhabiting her space. Soon the living and the dead are interacting and traversing through time and space, reliving the birth and early growth of twentieth century art and literature.

The playwright, Win Wells, has captured the pulse of the Paris of those years when Picasso, Hemingway, Matisse, Fitzgerald, and all the hodgepodge of Gertrude’s friends spent time together in the great writer’s salon.

A special benefit preview performance for the Breast Cancer Foundation will be held on Thursday, June 26th, sponsored by the Crescent City Outlaws.

Preview tickets are $25 and may be purchased from any member of the Crescent City Outlaws or by calling 504-813-7271 or 501-218-8559.

Performances continue on weekends through July 13th.

Label this under shameless self-promotion.
