Rendezvous with Marlene which is less filmed concert and more of a theatrical film, shot entirely at Club Cumming, Ute honors the Teutonic Marlene with a show based on the true story a phone call Ute received by the film legend 35 years ago in France.
“The show is an incredible journey through Marlene’s life.” – BroadwayWorld UK
In “Rendezvous with Marlene,” Lemper channels her story in a time warp, remembering Marlene as a woman of the future, her courage, bravery, her empowerment as a woman, her legend as an actress, singer, fashion icon, her free-spirited mind as a bisexual androgynous hedonist and her lifelong fight against autocrats and nationalists. After receiving the French Molière Award for her performance in Cabaret in Paris, Ute had sent a postcard to Marlene, who had lived at 12 Avenue de Montaigne since 1979, essentially apologizing for all the media attention comparing her to Dietrich. Ute was just at the beginning of her career in theatre and music, whereas Marlene looked back on a long, fulfilled life of movies, music, incredible collaborations, love stories and stardom. Ute considers it a secret gift to have heard Marlene talk about her life, her work and style, her love for the poet Rilke, her complicated relationship with Germany, and her sorrow and her fascinations.
