In this moving biographical musical, the words, work and passion of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas are center stage.
From the Tony Award-winning team of director, Frank Galati, and composer, Stephen Flaherty,Loving Repeating is a chamber-scale musical about the life and loves of the American expatriate author, intellectual and modernist. Using exclusively selected writings of Stein's, Frank Galati's insightful adaptation and Stephen Flaherty's charming music bring to life Stein's great love of language, her life with Alice B. Toklas and her fascinating view of the world.Loving Repeating is an inspired homage to a pivotal twentieth-century artist.
Loving Repeating follows Gertrude Stein from her student days in the late nineteenth century to the height of her artistic era in Paris as one of the "lost generation," a term that she coined to refer to those who came of age between the two world wars. The musical also explores the world of her capricious love affair with language, self-expression and her lifelong companion, Alice B. Toklas.
A wonderful show that features excellent female roles, Loving Repeating is the perfect addition to any community theatre's season.
