Weimar Confessions – Berlin Cabaret Songs
“Joyously sensual … fierce and powerful.“ – BroadwayWorld
In Weimar Confessions, Micaela Leon will celebrate the release of her debut album of Berlin cabaret songs at Feinstein’s/54 Below with musical director Alex Rybeck on piano, directed by Lina Koutrakos. “A sophisticated night out“ and “smart, sexy and spirited” testify The Scotsman and the Edinburgh Evening News. The 2007 New York Nightlife Award finalist and MAC Award nominee, who has garnered raves for her interpretations of German cabaret, takes you back to the smokey TingelTangel, the syncopated jazz, “Garboesque mystery“ (Backstage), decadence and avant-garde glamour of Weimar Berlin.
The show features songs by Kurt Weill, Friedrich Hollaender, Mischa Spoliansky, Robert Stolz, and others.
