Transforming the lobby into an intricate cityscape that references German expressionism, the cabaret journey offers a shadowy, atonal world for audiences that “blurs the lines between human, music and machine.”
Marlene and The Machine presents an off-key collaboration of music from 1920s German-American actress and singer Marlene Dietrich with that of 20th century Austrian performer Lotte Lenya.
With their recent recognition from the 2012 Knight Arts Challenge, a Philadelphia arts program that funds engaging and enriching ideas, The Bearded Ladies will continue to share innovative pieces at PIFA 2013 next March as well as throughout the summer.
A complete schedule and tickets for Marlene and The Machine can be viewed here.
Bonus: Tickets include all-you-can-drink themed cocktails to ensure the entertainment piece is thoroughly enjoyed.
