Lucie Pohl's Solo Show HI, HITLER Coming to 2013 Women at Work Festival & More, 10/2
Great Pretender Productions is proud to bring Hi, Hitler - A comedic solo show by Lucie Pohl to NYC performances at the 2013 Women atWork Festival (October 2), Emerging Artist Theater One Woman Standing (October 9), 2013 EstroGenius Sola Voce Festival (October 23) and theDixon Place Mainstage Series (October 25).
Hi, Hitler - A comedic solo show by Lucie Pohl tells the story of a half-Jewish-half-German-immigrant-girl who grows up in a crazy artist family in downtown New York and is fascinated by Hitler. All she wants is to be normal and to belong. But the odds are against her. And so is homeland security.
Lucie Pohl re-invents the solo show genre with her hilarious, autobiographical show combining stand-up comedy, storytelling and solo performance. Told in German and English, Lucie Pohl recounts her life growing up in a wacky family of actors and writers, first in Germany and then in the US and recreates her desperate efforts to fit in wherever she goes. From rocking out to David Hasselhoff in her native Hamburg, becoming her parent's translator in New York, to being told that despite having grown up in the US she has no more legal right to live here, Lucie Pohl takes us on a journey through the life of a young woman and first generation immigrant, with humor, wit and poetry.
Hi, Hitler is Lucie Pohl's inspiring and hysterical journey through the struggles of immigration, adulthood and love and the story of realizing that being at home means fitting in within your self. Even if you don't know who that is.
Written by and starring Lucie Pohl and under the creative direction of Jessi D. Hill, Hi, Hitler will also be performing in this year's Charm City Fringe Festival in November.
