Justyna Kostek to Star in World Premiere of DIETRICH RIDES AGAIN
On Thursday, August 31, Oliver Conant (Author/Director) and Justyna Kostek (Author/Star) will host the World Premiere of their anticipated one-woman tour-de-force musical, DIETRICH RIDES AGAIN, about the life and times of Marlene Dietrich.
Playing for three weeks through Sunday, September 17 at the Medicine Show Theatre (549 West 52 Street - between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues), DIETRICH RIDES AGAIN will be directed by Oliver Conant and choreographed by Madeline Jaye.
Musical Direction and arrangements are by Jono Mainelli.
Miss Kostek's costumes are by Derek Nye Lockwood.
The show's iconic score will feature: "Puttin' On The Ritz", "The Laziest Gal In Town", "You're The Cream In My Coffee", "Falling In Love Again", "Look Me Over Closely", "Lili Marlene", "Hot Voodoo", "The Boys In The Backroom" and "Where Have All The Flowers Gone".
Marlene Dietrich was a European film sensation, Hollywood's highest paid actress, a lifelong fashion icon, an unceasing USO entertainer, an awarded humanitarian, an international philanthropist, a Medal of Freedom recipient, a Légion d'Honneur honoree, an Academy Award nominee, a Tony Award winner, the Patron Saint of cabaret, a bewitching singer, a natural dancer and an International diva.
The very young Justyna Kostek is following in the great diva's footsteps.
Born and raised in Poland, where she began her work in experimental theatre at a very young age, Justyna Kostek then established the successful and award-winning theatre company, Atelier Teatral, in Denmark. She is already making her mark in the New York Theatre scene while preparing, with Mr. Conant, DIETRICH RIDES AGAIN for an Off-Broadway move as well as sifting through the mounting interest in a National Tour.
Divas are born to achieve.
