Micaela Leon & Paul Trueblood (MD)
directed by Lina Koutrakos

Written and performed by German-born singer and actress—Micaela Leon—this must-see 70-minute show will transport you to the roaring Berlin of the 1920's—a time of great political upheaval, decadence and creative adventure. While men were writing about modernism, women such as Marlene Dietrich, Valeska Gert and Anita Berber were pushing social boundaries—on stage and off. Recently described by Cabaret Hotline as '...amazing vocals and an equally amazing talent as actor...' Leon will introduce you to some of these dynamic women and reintroduces the music of Hollaender, Spoliansky, Eisler and Weill—works that were considered depraved or were destroyed by the Nazis.

Leon is accompanied by the musical director Paul Trueblood. Also born of German ancestry, Trueblood is an expert in the music of this era and has collaborated with one of the original "Weimar Girls"—Greta Keller—in 1970's New York. He has also performed songs by Weill, Hollaender, and others with Marianne Faithfull on her album—20th Century Blues.
