A beautifully rendered musical biography through song, dance and story of Marlene Dietrich created and performed by Nikki Nouveau. At one time Hollywood’s highest paid actress, Marlene Dietrich died penniless. Her fascinating story is re-imagined through her famous character Lola Lola in the classic 1930s film 'The Blue Angel'.
The show is set in Weimar Republic Berlin and unmasks the trials of an ageing film star, from her early beginnings as a musician, an under-recognised performance career in cabaret and theatre, through to her emergence as a shining legend of the silver screen. Dietrich was at heart a gentleman, prepared to take on a man’s world in a man’s uniform with a man’s daring.
