Paris Lights
“Imagine a musical revue in which Gertrude Stein leads a chorus of 1920s literary figures in a rousing paean to the joys of “Lifting Belly”. In which Ernest Hemingway takes on a couple of rivals in a drunken brawl that turns into a Nicholas Brothers dance routine. In which Josephine Baker sings a couple of bluesy songs set to poems by e.e. cummings and Ezra Pound. In which the talk is about books and bars instead of guys and gals…The show’s premise is just offbeat enough to be fun…”
