“Dietrich Rides Again”

Don’t miss the chance to see this limited performance!

There probably isn’t a person of film legend that isn’t a fan of the late Hollywood legend Marlene Dietrich from the 1930s and 40’s.  New York City Theater Director and actress Justyna Kostek has written, directed and stars in Dietrich Rides Again, a one-woman play on the life of Marlene.

As part of Troy Art Attack weekend Justyna will perform her Dietrich show for two performances on September 15 at 1 and 7PM at the Art Center of the Capital District at 265 River Street in Troy.

You may remember Justyna back in 2014 when we both directed Helen of Troy, NY. She starred in that performance as well.  Since then she started her theater company Just More Theatre, Inc. in New York City and has been performing ever since. Justyna’s one-woman show on Marlene gives us a great historical overview of Marlene’s tumultuous life and with over a dozen of her songs.  You can purchase tickets here at $18 each:

Reviews of her show have been outstanding.  Here is what Jim Kierstead, two times Tony Award winning Producer of Kinky Boots writes:

“Justyna Kostek’s loving and touching performance of Marlene Dietrich is not to be missed.  By the time you leave the theatre, you’ll feel as though you know this beloved and mysterious Hollywood legend.”
