It’s winter 1930 and Tante Fritzy, cabaret artiste extraordinaire invites you to have a ball in her gender-bender world. Never mind the rising popularity of the guy with the bad moustache. Come and celebrate Berlin’s edgiest cabaret music with the Museum and Tante Fritzy, whose drag performance captures the Cabaret culture and Weimar wildness that kicked – and continues to kick – the world on its ass. Many of the songs were originally written or performed by queer artists in Weimar era Berlin. The performance piece is based on an evening created by Alan Lareau for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945. The one-person show was originally produced by TOSOS (“The Other Side of Silence”) a theatre company dedicated to preserving the theatrical heritage of the LGBT community.
