About In Circles
The non-linear prose of Gertrude Stein is set to ragtime, tango, waltz, opera, barbershop quartet, jazz and other musical styles in the return of Al Carmines musical adaptation at Odyssey Theatre.
Of its original Off-Broadway production, The New York Times said: "...it was all about the sweetness and sadness of it all, and I loved it. There was no story, only words dropped in the air like cylinders of tear gas. Words for the sake of words, words for the sake of beauty, words for the sake of half-forgotten associations, phrases acting, Proust-like, opening doors of lost perception. And, oh yes, it was hilariously funny."
