A fascinating true story enhanced with fabulous songs, this musical tells Marlene and Maurice's love story as they meet in 1932 Hollywood, both Paramount's top stars, both married to others. They become lovers and friends for life. During World War II, Dietrich was entertaining her adoring G.I.s on battlefields, while Chevalier was in France, forced to sing in Paris to Nazi soldiers. As the war ended, Dietrich was hailed as a hero, while Chevalier was accused of treason and on trial for his life.
Audiences will love hearing 15 of their great songs sung their way! "Falling in love Again," "Louise," "Lili Marlene," "Mimi," "No Love, No Nothin'," "Valentine," "The Boys in the Back Room," "Girls, Girls, Girls" and 7 more signature hits.
