The 1920s were the time of flappers, flamboyance, and the face of Alla Nazimova. The Garden Of Alla is a critically acclaimed multimedia solo show based on the life of Alla Nazimova: Broadway star, Silent Screen legend, and one of the first female producers, and directors in Hollywood. An LGBTQ+ trailblazer and a Jewish immigrant who fled Tsarist Russia, she rose to meteoric heights only to be silenced for "overstepping her bounds". Telling her inspirational story, she speaks to our times as no one else can.

Garden of Alla uses immersive video and original music to invoke the Roaring Twenties and create a panoramic, live silent film of Nazimova’s life and times. The much-acclaimed show has appeared in theaters

all over the country including The Kennedy Center, The Players Club, TheaterLab, The Cutting Room,

59E59, HERE Arts Center, Theater 555, and internationally as a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe."
