Stein in America
On this day in 1934, Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson's Four Saints in Three Acts premiered. The opening was a celebrated event on its own -- Buckminster Fuller arrived to it in his Dymaxion Car -- but it also inspired Stein to visit America later in the year for a lecture tour. Her first visit in thirty years made tickertape headlines on the NY Times building and in the press: "Gerty Gerty Stein Stein is Back Home Home Back."
