About Marlene in Havana

Marlene’s film career is almost over and she is beginning a new career, in cabaret, back where she started. In the club ‘Sans Soucis’, 1920’s Berlin meets 1950’s Cuba, on the cusp of a revolution which will have political repercussions right up to the present day with a bitter US embargo. The show highlights Latin music elements which were so important in films of the day, Cuban hits and tangos along with classic Dietrich songs from the Weimar Republic and the Piaf songs Marlene also sang. Award-winning jazz tango violin virtuoso Omar Puente leads the band and opera singer Ann Liebeck plays Marlene, already in her late 50’s, with a script by multi award-winning author and broadcaster Brian Sibley, direction by James Norris and lighting design by Nigel Edwards.
