New York City, 1932: Eva Le Gallienne is trying to save her theatre company from the jaws of the Depression by mounting an innovative new production of*Alice in Wonderland. She agrees to give a radio interview for the sake of publicity, but while revisiting the moments that shaped her career, she struggles with the need to keep a significant secret: she and her leading lady are in love. As Eva's work careens toward catastrophe, she fights to preserve her dream of a people's theatre-but will she destroy the people she loves in the process? The true story of one of the 20th century's most remarkable artists,*The Queen of Fourteenth Street*reverberates powerfully today, as the American theatre faces an uncertain future and LGBTQ rights are once again under attack.

Editorial Reviews

JUNE 2024 - AudioFile

A talented cast of voice actors, including playwright Barrie Kreinik, dazzle in this audio original. The play tells the story of Eva Le Gallienne, a queer actor and director who founded a repertory theater in New York City in the 1920s. Her work revolutionized theater, but she struggled to keep her creation going during the Depression. She also had trouble balancing her personal life with her professional ambitions. Kreinik is stunning as Eva, capturing her intense larger-than-life personality. The remaining actors portray her various girlfriends, company actors, mentors, friends, and others. The production's impeccable sound design brings 1930s New York to life. A lively, moving listen about a fascinating woman who lived a fiercely queer life in the early twentieth century--this is audio theater at its absolute best. L.S.
