The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein Untitled Theater Company No. 61

About the show

A farce set at the fantasy wedding of Toklas and Stein, in which downtown theater notables Jan Leslie Harding, Mia Katigbak, Grant Neale & Alyssa Simon play Parisian expatriate notables of a century ago. Picasso has brought two of his mistresses and one of his wives. Hemingway has also brought his wife but is more obsessed by his matador. Meanwhile, all involved discuss matters of art, genius, friendship, religion, more genius, sexuality, money, fame, genius again, and of course love. The play both celebrates the love of Toklas and Stein and examines the significance of legal legitimacy and the lack thereof. Winner of a playwriting award and grant from the Arch & Bruce Brown Foundation for positive portrayals of LGBTQ historical characters. To quote them: "Writing in the style of Stein, with his tongue firmly in cheek, Einhorn has concocted a heady guest list of 1920s literati and their friends coming together to celebrate in a French farce of epic proportions."
