Described as an “extraordinary, unforgettable evening with a sublime artist at the height of her powers – it should on no account be missed!” Musical Theatre Review, Ute Lemper’s Rendezvous With Marlene channels Dietrich’s story of courage, glamour, and humanity. Ahead of her time, Dietrich was a legend as an actress, singer, fashion icon, and free spirited bisexual androgynous hedonist with a life-long hatred of autocrats and nationalists. In her first show entirely focused on honouring Marlene, based on the true story of a phone call they shared, Lemper interprets some of Dietrich’s most beautiful songs and recounts some captivating secrets of her life. Don’t miss this enthralling exploration of Marlene’s career and personal life by one of the great cabaret artists of our age.
