Peter Groom’s fascinating and entertaining show Dietrich: Natural Duty highlights the extraordinary contribution Marlene Dietrich made during the war.
Back from London after seeing my son in Imperium (proud dad), I packed in nine shows into two days and already the cream is rising to the top and some images and themes remain, whilst others quietly slip away.
Dietrich – Natural Duty, as part of the VAULT Festival, flies by and ends at the perfect moment. It’s such an interesting piece that you’d like more but are satisfied that you have been educated and thoroughly entertained. Peter Groom as Marlene Dietrich is enigmatic, engaging and totally captivating.
“Natural Duty is a one (wo)man cabaret exploring the life of Hollywood icon Marlene Dietrich. The show is a mix of theatre, drag and cabaret and uses songs and stories to explore a legends extraordinary commitment to duty.”
