The late and legendary Marlene Dietrich last appeared in Brighton at the Theatre Royal in 1973 – and 45 years later, she’s on her way back!
AWARD-winning performer and writer Patricia Hartshorne is returning to play Brighton Fringe, and bringing Miss Dietrich with her.
“Last year I was in Brighton with my show about Adolf Hitler” says Patricia, “but this time I’ll be playing the woman who dared to defy him. She’ll be at the New Steine Hotel throughout May and early June in my solo cabaret DOPPEL DIETRICH. Come and meet her – she might even give you a carnation!”
This much-travelled show is a humorous and haunting look at the colourful life, loves and songs of Marlene Dietrich. With her “eerily accurate representation”, Patricia doubles as the Hollywood legend, engaging with her audience via anecdotes, a few surprises and all those Dietrich classics. Hear Lili Marleen, Boys in the Backroom, La Vie en Rose, Falling in Love Again … and many more.
“It was a life of glamour and talent – with a penchant for men’s clothing,” says Patricia, who invites you to laugh and cry with her.
Discover an eventful life that spanned the twentieth century – from bi-sexual cross-dresser to Hollywood icon, from wartime entertainer to international cabaret star, from outrageous self-publicist to uncompromising recluse …
Are you up for some ‘doppel strength’ Dietrich? The woman who was way ahead of her time and answered to nobody – not even Adolf Hitler!
