BWW Review: KIM DAVID SMITH: MOSTLY MARLENE is an Inspired Creation, Indeed, at Club  Photo BWW Review: KIM DAVID SMITH: MOSTLY MARLENE is an Inspired Creation, Indeed, at Club Cumming
by Ricky Pope - Sep 11, 2021

The wonderful, magical part of MOSTLY MARLENE is that Kim David Smith plays none of it for camp. He winks at the audience, to be sure, but the evening is an honest and loving tribute to Marlene, the world she inhabited, and the fans who adored her. He captures her signature style: the languid delivery, the fluid gestures, the almost predatory sexuality, and those breathtaking moments when she became so still and internal it was a little spooky. None of it feels natural, and that’s precisely the point. Marlene Dietrich always let the audience in on the fact that they weren’t watching reality, they were watching an inspired creation. Kim David Smith is inspired, indeed.
