CLUB GELBE STERN

A play with music in one act

Written by Alexis Fishman and James Millar

featuring music by Friedrich Hollander, Mischa Spolianksy, Rudolph Nelson and more. 

Set in Berlin, 1933, Club Gelbe Stern - a musical in one act - tells the story of Erika Stern, a fictional Jewish chanteuse living and performing in Berlin as the Nazis rise to power. Erika is provocative, sassy, feisty and above all determined to give a magnificent performance to her loyal audience. Using German, British and American cabaret music of the 1920’s and 30’s, Club Gelbe Stern is a cabaret within a play, offering audiences a glimpse into what it may have been like for Jewish performers in the final days of the Weimar Republic.

“Club Gelbe Stern” needs to be seen before it closes... and hopefully in a production somewhere soon thereafter.”

“Alexis Fishman commands the stage with a seductive sensuality and fiercely independent outlook....

it is her fine interpretive skills and emotionally invested performance that you'll walk out remembering”

 

 

 

 Nightlife Exchange 

"Ms. Fishman, manages to convey the deep charisma crucial to pulling off her role as Berlin’s biggest cabaret star. She is laugh-out-loud funny.. 

The Show Sparkles... "
