Food writer Francesca's dinner party features famous recipes from the Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, along with a guest list that's an almost certain recipe for disaster. It includes Pilar, a multilingual art detective with visa problems; Bricka, a lesbian widow with a child and custody-seeking Republican in-laws; Joe, an OB/GYN whose lover is a disoriented drug addict; and Kev, a playwright who has written a soon-to-open play about...all of them. A hilarious, irreverent look at gay and lesbian life in the new millennium.

Published Reviews

"Hilarious! I had a ball at Bass for Picasso! An authentically witty and intelligent comedy...the same kind of exotic and nurturing treat Toklas intended to cook up for Picasso."

NYtheatre.com

"Well done. Bass for Picasso shines... clever and irreverent."

Edge NY

"Our highest recommendation. A witty style reminiscent of Moss Hart's dinner-party comedies. Kate Moira Ryan's script is superb."

NY Theater Buying Guide

"Ryan has some extraordinarily politically incorrect situations into her mix -- as well as a slew of one liners. Quite funny!"

Theatermania.com

"The dialogue is of a Woody Allen tartness with a touch of malapropism."

TheaterOnline.com

"Over-the-top AbFab goofiness... very funny."

Broadwayworld.com

"Piled high with some outlandish gags and recurring jokes... zingy one-liners that cut quick and deep."
