“Rendezvous with Marlene” – A One-Woman Presentation
September 18 - September 22
The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director; Evans Haile, Executive Director), dedicated to the development of new musicals and preserving musical gems from the past, will present international stage star Ute Lemper in a new one-woman presentation of Rendezvous with Marlene, a new show written and performed by Ms. Lemper based on a conversation with the legendary Marlene Dietrich and featuring some of her iconic songs. FIVE PERFORMANCES ONLY, September 18 – 22 2019 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
Ute Lemper’s newest creation, Rendezvous with Marlene, is her very personal homage to Marlene Dietrich. For 35 years Ute has been compared to Marlene, but never formatted an entire show to celebrate this legend. Now in 2019, Ute decided to honor her with Rendezvous With Marlene, a brand-new show based on the true story of her three-hour phone call with Marlene 30 years ago, in 1988, when they both lived in Paris. The evening is a dialog between Ute and Marlene, exploring Marlene’s career and personal life from the beginning, in a timeline that eventually meets Ute’s timeline with a continuation of their parallel stories. Ute sings Marlene’s most beautiful songs and tells some captivating secrets of her life. This show will tour the stages of the world in 2021.
Rendezvous with Marlene plays the following performance schedule: Wednesday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m., Thursday afternoon, September 19 at 2:30 p.m., Friday, September 20 at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, September 21 at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday afternoon, September 22 at 2:30 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: There is no Thursday evening performance on September 19.
