All She Must Possess
“All She Must Possess”
By Susan McCully
Directed by Joseph Ritsch
February 8–25, 2018
The Baltimore Cone sisters, Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived tranquil, appropriate lives as respected Victorian ladies. Instead, the iconic duo voraciously collected art and curios from around the world. The unassuming Etta, often overshadowed by her sister, sat demurely among art and literary geniuses of the early twentieth century while slowly amassing one of world's greatest Modern art collections. “All She Must Possess” is a highly theatrical celebration of Etta's extraordinary life. Works of art come alive and her one-time lover, Gertrude Stein, sings her praises as we watch her journey from society laughingstock to doyen of Modernity.
