Ute Lemper

Rendezvous with Marlene
Sunday, April 25, 2021 8 PM Online
Ute Lemper by Russ Rowland
Rendezvous with Marlene is based on a three-hour phone exchange in 1987 between legendary actress Marlene Dietrich and Ute Lemper. At the time, Dietrich was living as a recluse in her Paris apartment, while Lemper was being celebrated by Parisian audiences for her performance as Sally Bowles in Cabaret. In this one-woman show, Lemper shares Dietrich’s story, channels her emotions, and celebrates songs that highlight various chapters of her career, from the Berlin cabaret years to her later collaborations with Burt Bacharach. In one of the most poignant periods of her life, Dietrich was especially vocal against the Nazis during World War II, renouncing her German citizenship and passionately supporting Jews and other dissidents who—like her—faced discrimination and retribution. Musical selections include “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Falling in Love Again,” and “Lili Marleen.”

Available through May 31, 2021.
