Launch of Sofia Chapman’s first book in print, Todd in Venice, which premiered at La Mama in 2017, with scenes played by Alex Beyer as the young and beautiful gay boy Todd and Sofia as the transitioning character Agnes, and live accordion music.
A sparklingly playful script, full of linguistic acrobatics and sexual intrigue, where gender is as fluid as the reality of the city in which it is set. Inspired by Thomas Mann’s Der Tod in Venedig (Death in Venice) … a guided tour of Venice and humanity, by turns poignant, funny, provocative, and joyful.
Performer as Todd: Alex Beyer
