Romy Nordlinger in "Garden of Alla": Description
Written and performed by Romy Nordlinger, The Garden of Alla is a critically acclaimed multimedia solo performance telling the story of Alla Nazimova, the forgotten 1920s trailblazing silent film and Broadway actress. A Jewish immigrant who escaped Tsarist Russia, Nazimova became a Broadway legend, the highest-paid silent movie star in Tinseltown, and the first female director/producer/writer in Hollywood. Unapologetic about her bisexuality, she coined the infamous â€œsewing circleâ€ (a code term for meetings of closeted lesbians), hosting the greatest star-studded parties at her infamous Garden of Alla. Defying the moral and artistic codes of her time, Nazimova was censored and forced into obscurity.
â€œâ€¦ a superb, striking must-seeâ€¦ Places! is a clarion call for us never to give up, despite injustices
which threaten to destroy men and women alike.â€ - Carole Di Tosti, Theater Pizzazz
