An Evening with Gertrude Stein & The Lost Generation: A Staged Radio Play/Themed Party w. Live Music, Crepes & Absinthe!
Friday, July 25
Raconteur Radio & The Borough Improvement League cordially invite you to spend an evening in Paris with Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Isadora Duncan, Henri Matisse, F. Scott Fitzgerald & Salvador Dali at 27 Rue de Fleurus. Hosted by Gertrude Stein! For some forty years, Stein's home at 27 rue de Fleurus on the Left Bank of Paris was a renowned Friday evening gathering place for both expatriate American artists and writers and others noteworthy in the world of vanguard arts and letters. Entrée into the Stein salon was a sought-after validation, and Stein became combination mentor, critic, and guru to those who gathered around her, including Ernest Hemingway, who described the salon in A Moveable Feast. To commemorate Stein's passing on July 27, 1946, Jane Hardy returns for ONE NIGHT ONLY! with her tour-de-force radio drama portrayal of the dynamic matriarch and the (lost) generation of writers and artists she mentored. Featuring theatrical lighting, period costuming, extensive sound effects, and a selection of period Parisian ballads (Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker) sung live by our resident honey-toned chanteuse, Danielle Illario. Plus a range of French appetizers/desserts (TBA), and a variety of French wines, liquors, and cocktails popular with the Lost Generation including Pernod, dripped Absinthe, and the Jack Rose (using Harry MacHelone's 1920's Paris recipe) Cabaret-style table seating. 35.00 in advance. 45.00 at the door. House opens at 7:30.
