Set in the historic Stray Dog café in St. Petersburg, Russia, This Beautiful Lady explores “the power of art and the delicate nature of free speech.” The café was a popular meeting spot for poets, writers, performers, and other artists between 1911 and 1915. There they pushed the boundaries of art and language as part of a revolution that would eventually turn on them. The actors will portray real figures from the era.
