Falling in Love Again



New Zealand’s first lady of stage and screen, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, pays tribute to the legendary actress and singer Marlene Dietrich, in Falling in Love Again.

Falling in Love Again was devised in collaboration with musical director and pianist Grant Winterburn. Singing highlights from Miss Dietrich’s films, concerts and recordings, Jennifer features songs by Cole Porter, Edith Piaf, Frederic Hollander and Pete Seeger. Jennifer and Grant are joined by bass player Aaron Coddel.

Beautifully lit by lighting designer Andrew Malmo, and featuring an exquisite recreation of one of Dietrich’s famous gowns, this acclaimed show vividly captures the timeless style and glamour of an icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

‘The spellbinding web this trio weaves is nothing short of captivating… it was wonderful to overhear older members of the audience swooning excitedly after the show about how perfect every detail was.’ Huxley, 2017
