Production Description
Set in the historic Stray Dog café in St. Petersburg, Russia, The Beautiful Lady explores "the power of art and the delicate nature of free speech." The café was a popular meeting spot for poets, writers, performers, and other artists between 1911 and 1915. There they pushed the boundaries of art and language as part of a revolution that would eventually turn on them. The actors will portray real figures from the era.
