Long before Madonna, the world was gaga for Nazimova. Places is the story of trailblazer Alla Nazimova: 1920s silent movie icon, Broadway legend and the most famous star youve never heard of. From Tsarist Russia to Broadway, Alla was once the highest paid movie star in Tinseltown and the first female director and producer in Hollywood. Unapologetic about her bisexuality and lust for life, she defied the moral and artistic codes of her time that eventually forced her into obscurity. Romy Nordlingers multimedia one-hander revives one of the most daring artists of the 20th century with passion and humour.
