It is 1933 in divinely decadent Berlin. Alexis Fishman is Erika Stern, darling of the Weimar Cabaret scene whose show embodies the excess and daring of her time. But as the Nazi’s rise to power, tonight’s performance will be her last. The lights go down, and the audience holds their breath.
Der Gelbe Stern tells the story of Erika Stern, a fictional Jewish chanteuse living and performing in pre-war Berlin as the Nazis begin their rise to power. Erika is provocative, sassy, feisty and above all determined to give a magnificent performance to her loyal audience while acknowledging her fate closing in on her. Using German, British and American cabaret music of the 1920’s and 30’s, Der Gelbe Stern is a cabaret within a play, offering audiences a glimpse into the final days of the Weimar Republic.
