A scintillating exploration of the relationship between Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Ricky Ian Gordon and Royce Vavrek’s 27  takes you inside Stein’s Paris salon at 27 Rue de Fleurus, with such guests as Picasso, Hemingway, Matisse, and Fitzgerald.  Commissioned by Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, 27 received its world premiere in June 2014.
