DIRECTED BY ANNE BOGART

Presented as part of the citywide Celebrating Stein series of events, this lyrical, touching, and often hilarious performance journeys through the unparalleled lives of these thoroughly modern women. Gertrude Stein was an American original: expatriot, pioneer modernist writer, art collector, salonniere, friend, and mentor to painters and writers of renown. Alice Babette Toklas was wife, lover, friend, secretary, housekeeper, gardener, publisher, and finally, perpetuator of Stein's artistic legacy. Winner of a 1999-2000 Obie Award, A Likeness to Loving pairs stars Lola Pashalinski and Linda Chapman with internationally celebrated director Anne Bogart in a production the New York Times hails as "Beautifully conceived! Perhaps the most intimate look yet at a friendship that was both sensual and tempestuous!" Copresented with the Guthrie Theater.
