Loving Repeating - 2006 - Chicago

LOVING REPEATING is an inspired new musical about the































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































brilliant American expatriate writer Gertrude Stein







and her passion for life,































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































language, and the thrill of romantic love.

LOVING REPEATING follows Gertrude Stein from her student days in the late 19th century to the height of her artistic era in Paris as one of the 'lost generation,' a term she coined referring to those who came of age between the two world wars. The musical also explores the world of her capricious love affair with language, self-expression, and her lifelong companion Alice B. Toklas.

A wonderful show that features excellent female roles, LOVING REPEATING is the perfect addition to any community theatre's season.

Vic Theatre Company has had a very auspicious beginning, staging the award winning Loving Repeating, the hilarious 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and now the joint billing of Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years and Jenkins and Hannagan's Australian musical The Gathering. This week The Last Five Years opened with two very strong performances in this two handed musical tracking the five year relationship of Jamie and Cathy. The musical starts at the beginning of the relationship for Jamie and the end for Cathy and crosses over with their wedding in the middle of the 80 minute one act piece. Often seen as a breakout work for Brown and a worthy member of the contemporary musical theatre canon, the piece itself was somewhat flat and underwhelming. That's not to say the performances were in any way, far from it. However, as a whole, Jason Robert Brown's score isn't particularly vibrate or clever within the context of his show. There are of course moments of brilliance, however, these moments are few and too far between.
