About this show

Actress Cindy Marinangel will star in next month's world premiere of Marlene, a new one-woman play about German actress, singer, patriot, and feminist Marlene Dietrich at the New York Theatre Festival's Winterfest 2018.

Set in May 1960, the play takes place when German-born Dietrich returned to the Berlin stage for the first time since fleeing the Hitler regime in the 1930s. Inside her dressing room at the Tatiana Palast Theater, she weighs whether to go through with the live performance despite threats on her life by Nazi sympathizers who resented her for having spent much of World War II entertaining American soldiers on the front lines. To them, she is a traitor who deserves to be shot and killed onstage.
