"With a cool stare, gloved gestures and slightly naughty allusions, she projected a tempestuous Berlin cabaret singer tamed by love…By the time she launched the wartime anthem "Lili Marlene," the illusion of Dietrich was complete." - Washington Post
Internationally celebrated singer Karen Kohler will perform songs from her tributes to Kurt Weill and Marlene Dietrich in this special concert for the 2006 German-American Friendship Week. "Many of these hits from the Weimar Republic were banned when the Nazis’ came to power in 1933," Kohler says. She presents her own interpretations in German, French and English of standards like "Falling in Love Again," and "Surabaya Johnny," alongside lesser known songs by these and other legends of Weimar-era Berlin. Born in Germany and raised in New York, Karen specializes in European cabaret and American pop. .
