The Berlin Schnauze with heart is back! Claire Waldoff sang and performed her chansons with wit and cheerfulness, deep empathy and a sense of reality. What was it that made her special? Why, of all people, did a young actress who had come to Berlin from the Ruhr area symbolize so much the image of the Berlin brat in the late imperial era and the 1920s?
"Chanson-Nette" Jeannette Urzendowsky is a "Berlin plant" from the Friedrichshain neighborhood. In a duo with Herbert Götz at the piano, she takes her audience back to the time when Claire became a legend. In doing so, she does not imitate her, but recalls in her own way the great comedienne, born in 1884, and her various facets and phases of life. Claire was youthful-tender, cheeky, tomboyish, self-confident and vulnerable.
Many popular chansons and rarer songs from Claire Waldoff's repertoire are part of the program. "Ach Jott, wat sind die Männer dumm!", "Die Großstadtpflanze", "Das Dornröschen vom Wedding" or "Raus mit den Männern aus dem Reichstag" fill this evening for all fans of Berlin humor. And of course Chanson-Nette tells many stories from Claire's life with her genuine Berlin mouth.
The Berliner Tagesspiegel writes about Chanson-Nette:
"There are only a few artists who can embody a Berlin original so credibly."
Directions: U5 subway line from the Brandenburg Gate or Alex to the subway station. Weberwiese, from there it's just a few steps to the theater. It's best to go by car to the "Parkhaus Kosmos", from there it's a 1-2 minute walk.
Everything okay, the theater is on the groundfloor.
