Marlene Dietrich may be 150 years old now but that hasn’t stopped her appearing nightly this week at the Miami Light Project. Frau Dietrich is the star of Marlene and the Machine a show which combines her music with that of Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor, and with the visual and musical language of German Expressionism. This extraordinary event, the likes of which Miami has never witnessed before, is the work of the multi-talented Bearded Ladies Cabaret from Philadelphia led by their fearless (some would say manic) artistic director and star John Jarboe.
Be prepared to enter a shadowy, atonal world in which The Bearded Ladies blur the lines between humanity, music, and machine in the reamaining two days of their run. Check out www.beardedladiescabaret.com to find where they will appear next.
