Quotes & Highlights

“My friend Marlene Dietrich would have loved this musical.” —Mitzi Gaynor

Description

Their passion, their songs, their untold love story. Hollywood’s two biggest stars in love. World War II pulled them apart, then brought them back together, just in time.

- Maurice Chevalier will be played by Robert Cuccioli (Star of hit Broadway musical Jekyll and Hyde and Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well)

- Marlene Dietrich will be played by Jodi Stevens (From Broadway’s Urban Cowboy and Jekyll and Hyde)

- 8 fascinating characters will be played by Donald Corren (Co-star of Broadway’s Souvenir)

Directed by Pamela Hall, Produced by Edmund Gaynes

Musical direction by Ken Lundie, additional musical staging by Gene Castle.

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.
