Marlene Dietrich: Live in Gateshead
Presented by Sage Gateshead and Curious Arts
Listen here to Peter Groom’s curated playlist of Marlene Dietrich songs:
After touring internationally with award-winning one (wo)man show, Dietrich: Natural Duty, actor and drag artist Peter Groom returns to the North East with a brand new cabaret.
“Exudes class and excellence, it’s funny, charming – a show not to be missed” BroadwayWorld
Drawing inspiration from Marlene Dietrich’s iconic solo show, performed internationally during her last years in the limelight, this new cabaret is a sensational evening of song that revisits some of the Hollywood star’s most memorable numbers, including Lili Marlene, Lola, and of course Falling in Love Again.
“This show, and Groom, are mesmerising and will take your breath away” The Gay UK
Besides Dietrich’s most notable numbers, Groom will also reimagine classics from the Great American Songbook as well as some Festive songs, in the inimitable style of the woman Hemingway called “the beautiful mystery”.
