Truth Tellers and Trouble Makers in Paris' Jazz Age - SOLD OUT!

Presented with Chandelier Creative


“Live it up to write it down,” was the motto of the Jazz Age, turning loose on the page, stage or canvas the youthful excesses of a blissful pavanne of parties. Driven from America by censorship and Prohibition, the truth tellers and troublemakers arrived by the ship-full to test their talents in Paris.


Many of them re-shaped the history of Modernism: James Joyce, Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, John Dos Passos, e.e. cummings, George Gershwin, Gertrude Stein, Cole Porter, Coco Chanel and Ernest Hemingway (who lived by the adage, "write the truest sentence you know"). Others caused just as much trouble, becoming more infamous than famous, such as Nancy Cunard, Archibald MacLeish, Dorothy Parker, Josephine Baker, and George Antheil, the self-proclaimed "bad boy of music". Let’s take an evening to revisit the fun, and the masterpieces, that made Paris in the 20’s the place to be.

There will also be a live Jazz band performing beginning at 7pm.
