Booking and more information

It is 1933 in divinely decadent Berlin. Alexis Fishman (Dusty, Kiss of the spiderwoman) is Erika Stern, darling of the Weimar cabaret scene. Feisty, sassy and always provocative, her show embodies the excess and daring of her time.

For two weeks only, the Reginald Theatre at the Seymour Centre is transformed into a German underground bar for Stern’s rousing cabaret performance. But as the Nazis rise to power, tonight’s performance will be her last. The lights go down and the audience holds their breath.

Presented by Three Fish Productions. Written by James Millar and Alexis Fishman. Directed by Tanya Goldberg.

Part of Berlin Sydney, in association with the exhibition The mad square: modernity in German art 1910-37 at the Art Gallery of NSW
