Why See Lili Marlene?
A poignant love story set against the growing shadow of Nazism, Lili Marlene takes us back to the last year of the Weimar Republic where famous Jewish cabaret singer Rosie Penn and aristocrat beau Count Hans Wilhelm Von Kleislet Graff (Willi for short) find their future at stake as fascism rears its ugly head. As Willi uses his influence and position at the Foreign Ministry to aid the educated elite, friend and family to escape the country, the couple face a heartbreaking decision as the influence and fear of National Socialism tears into every aspect of their lives.
Described as tightly woven emotional tapestry, Lili Marlene is a quietly beautiful exploration of the era that displays the power of hope and optimism in the face of unknown terror. With book and music from Michael Antin, Lili sweeps through the era in lullabies, rousing beer songs and beguiling duets that expertly complete this unmissable story.
