Berlin's last starlit night.

It is 1933 in divinely decadent Berlin. Alexis Fishman (NYMF’s Next Broadway Sensation Winner 2012) is Erika Stern, darling of the crumbling Weimar Cabaret scene. Feisty, sassy, and always provocative, her show embodies the excess and daring of the time. But as the Nazis rise to power, tonight’s performance will be her last. The lights go down and the audience holds their breath.

Running Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes with no intermission
