The story of the most famous star you’ve never heard of: trailblazing lesbian iconoclast - Alla Nazimova!
Romy Nordlinger's original multimedia solo show Places, tells the story of Alla Nazimova, the rule-breaking, lesbian Broadway and Hollywood legend. From a Jewish immigrant fleeing Tsarist Russia to Hollywood’s first female director and producer and one of Broadways' brightest stars, Nazimova was a trailblazer who wouldn’t be silenced. Nordlinger’s solo performance reimagines one of the most daring and censored artists of the 20th century who tells it like it was… and still is.

A constant video stream is projected behind and onto the performer throughout the play, becoming a part of her. This visual landscape of atmospheric textures echoes Nazimova's thoughts, layered with scratched celluloid, as if from a flickering silent movie projector. Evocative images inform moments of her life in Russia, New York and Hollywood, including her infamous Garden of Allah.

Sold Out all its NYC shows at 59E59 prior to its smash August run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
