Welcome to her fascination with the iconic Marlene Dietrich.
The show, “La Dietrich”, offers many of the songs that made Marlene famous around the world such as “Naughty Lola”, “Falling in love again” and “Lilli Marleen ” however Miss Nin brings to her audience a far more complex picture of the magnificently formed Dietrich.
An independent German woman caught in the world politics of Hitler and the Third Reich in the 1930′s and 1940′s.
Torn between her homeland, her family and her new life in America she faced difficult decisions that others ignored by staying in Hollywood.
“La Dietrich” draws the audience into Marlene’s unique role as an allied troops entertainer amongst soldiers, officers, civilians and as a German who had become an American citizen, refusing Hitler’s and Goebbel’s offer to portray the “perfect” Aryan woman for the Third Reich propaganda films.
Often at the front line and suffering the same daily discomforts as the soldiers Marlene showed the courage of her convictions like no other film star.
Caroline furthers her homage into the second half of Dietrich’s career by showing how she reinvented herself , once again, by performing all around the world for over two decades in the 50’s and 60’s.
Nin depicts a passionate yet in control woman over her 50 years career, an intelligent yet dark woman, courageous yet lonely, tempered yet giving.
It is an amazing portrait of a full and complex woman caught in the politics of the time.
