CA: World Premiere of “MARLENE” by Willard Manus on August 6

MARLENE, a new solo play about the legendary actress, performer–-and patriot– Marlene Dietrich, will have its world premiere at 7pm on Sunday, August 6 at Write Act Repertory @ the Brickhouse Theatre in North Hollywood. Produced by John Lant, written by Willard Manus and directed by Judith Rose, the play stars Cindy Marinangel.

The play is set in Dietrich’s dressing-room at Berlin’s Tatiana Palast Theatre, where she is trying to decide whether she should go through with the recital. Threats have been made on her life by Nazi sympathizers who still resented her for having spent much of WW II entertaining American soldiers on the front lines. In their eyes she is a turncoat, a traitor, and should be killed.

MARLENE will be performed every Sunday night at 7:00PM through August 27 at the Brickhouse, which is located at 10950 Peach Grove Street, at Camarillo & Vineland, in North Hollywood.
