Lili Marlene The Musical
op St. Luke's Theatre
Lili Marlene, the original musical love story of Rosie Penn, the famous cabaret singer, and Count Hans Wilhelm van Kleister Graff, is set in the last year of the Weimar German Republic and into the 3rd Reich period.
As the dark clouds of Fascist takeover become clearer, the Count, as the head of the passport bureau of the State Department, works to get the VIP German cultural and scientific elite out of German. The Count realizes that he must leave and get his surviving family out before the shadowy inhumanity of anti-Semitism descends upon them as National Healthcare and Immigration Reform, Industrial Unity and National Pride become the motto of the new Nazi Party.
Lili Marlene has been praised as “a stand alone and unique show... I highly recommend Lili Marlene” (NoHoArts.com),
“Come to the Cabaret…tale with incredible talent” (The Examiner – Los Angeles).
