Jennifer Ward-Lealand pays tribute to the iconic actress and singer Marlene Dietrich, in Falling in Love Again.
This show was devised in collaboration with musical director and pianist Grant Winterburn. Singing highlights from Miss Dietrich’s films, concerts and recordings, Jennifer features songs by Cole Porter, Edith Piaf, Frederic Hollander and Pete Seeger. Jennifer and Grant 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 show vividly captures the style and glamour of a time gone by.
“The foot-stomping demand for an encore and standing ovation before the final notes had faded say it all … Jennifer Ward-Lealand’s audience is spell-bound”. Theatreview
“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” – Huxley
