Make haste for the Cort Theatre simply to share the astonishing power of this new play with music about a delicious ancient Broadway scandal that pulses through the decades to
our own time.

Places, The Play – Submitted by LPTW Members
Ludovica Villar-Hauser & Romy Nordlinger

July 21 – July 30

59E59 Theaters
59 East 59th Street
Btwn Park & Madison Aves

Yonder Window Theatre Company and Parity Productions are thrilled to announce that writer/performer Romy Nordlinger’s Places is among the selected performances for this year’s East to Edinburgh festival at 59E59 Theaters.

Places will play 6 performances in July before traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland for the 2017 Fringe Festival where it will have 25 performances over the month of August (4th – 27th).

Places, a tour-de-force one-actor multimedia show, 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, 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.
