The 1920s was the time of flappers, flamboyance, and the face of Alla Nazimova.

Written and performed by Romy Nordlinger, THE GARDEN OF ALLA ~ THE STORY OF ALLA NAZIMOVA is a critically acclaimed multimedia solo performance telling the story of Alla Nazimova, the forgotten trailblazing iconoclast. A Jewish immigrant who escaped Tsarist Russia, she became a Broadway legend, the highest-paid silent movie star in Tinseltown, and the first female director/producer/writer in Hollywood. Unapologetic about her bisexuality, she coined the infamous “sewing circle" (a code term for meetings of closeted lesbians), at her infamous Garden of Alla that hosted the greatest never-ending star-studded party of the 1920s. Defying the moral and artistic codes of her time, Nazimova was eventually censored and forced into obscurity.

"This enlightening production’s currency is chilling. It is a superb, striking must-see. Nordlinger portrays Nazimova, with stylized grace and aplomb... Places is a clarion call for us never to give up, despite injustices which threaten to destroy men and women alike". - Carole Di Tosti, Theater Pizzazz

"It is an important piece of theatre that will touch the minds and hearts of viewers... Inspirational, a beautifully honest portrayal of a talented woman who was a true trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community". – Marina Kennedy, Broadway World

"A superb, striking must-see, for its stellar acting, writing, and production values".
– Theatre Scene

“Every so often the stars align. In this case, these stars are Romy Nordlinger and Alla Nazimova. Channeling the spirit and sensuality of an artist to whom attention must be paid. Romy Nordlinger gives us a tiny window into the complicated and tenacious woman of the theater.”– Alexander Dinelaris (Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Birdman)
