Fizz & Ginger traces the steps of the 1920s New Yorker nightlife reviewer, Lipstick, as she enters a party in pursuit of a story. Hot on the heels of her rum-running boyfriend Benny, she finds him at The Crossroads, mixed with company she’s never seen before. Old Tom Bullock is in town slinging drinks fresh out of his cocktail book while Marjorie croons the tunes of a lover lost to the Great War. Nellie, a writer for Harlem’s ‘The Messenger’ magazine, is there to support her bohemian best friend Bruce who is necking with a man he shouldn’t be necking with. With a jazz combo, this Chicago premiere pays homage to Lipstick’s reviews from the ‘New Yorker’ archives.
