Legendary actress and singer Marlene Dietrich is celebrated in Falling In Love Again, a tribute by New Zealand’s first lady of stage and screen, Jennifer Ward-Lealand.
Singing highlights from Miss Dietrich’s films, concerts and recordings, Jennifer performs songs by Cole Porter, Edith Piaf, Frederic Hollander and Pete Seeger. Jennifer and musical director and pianist Grant Winterburn are joined by bass player Aaron Coddel.
Beautifully lit by lighting designer Andrew Malmo, and featuring an exquisite recreation of one of Dietrich’s famous gowns, this acclaimed performance vividly captures the timeless style and glamour of an icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
“The spellbinding web this trio weaves is nothing short of captivating... it was wonderful to overhear older members of the audience swooning excitedly after the show about how perfect every detail was.”
