“Dietrich,” is a compelling and acclaimed one-woman play about iconic German actress Marlene Dietrich. Played by Cindy Marinangel, written by renowned play write Willard Manus and brilliantly accompanied by pianist Russell Daisey, “Dietrich” just had a successful, limited Off-Broadway engagementwww.dietrichplay.com 
Cindy Marinangel embodied the essence of Marlene Dietrich
in this original play. The story of Dietrich is about a woman full of passion, glamour, art, and war and a friend of the Jews. She was one of the most alluring legends of Hollywood’s  golden age.
"Dietrich”  is a based on a true story. Set in May 1960, the play takes place when the actress returned to the Berlin stage for the first time since fleeing the Hitler regime in the 1930’s. Inside her dressing room at the Tatiana Palast Theater, Dietrich weighs whether to go through with the live performance despite threats on her life by Nazi sympathizers who resented her for having spent much of World War II entertaining American soldiers on the front lines. To them, Dietrich is a turncoat; a traitor who deserves to be shot and killed on stage. 
Throughout the 70 minute play, you can’t take your eyes off of Cindy Marinangel. You can feel her unique appeal, see the inner life of Dietrich- a woman full of grit and ambition, who defied convention, seduced the world, and forged her own path. With Marinangel’s own sultry beauty, smoky voice and androgyny, she reveals a series of Dietrich’s stormy love affairs that pushed the boundaries of social convention of the time. Marinangel and Dietrich are women full of sizzle and decadence reminiscent of Weimar Berlin.
In the late 1930’s Marlene Dietrich first became an international sensation with her film  The Blue Angel. She not only watched in horror from the safety of America as Hitler destroyed her homeland but she sold more war bonds than anyone and donated an entire film salary to assist Jews with passage, jobs and housing in America. Three actors and several members of the crew who worked with her on  The Blue Angel were interred in Dachau, where they perished.
As one of Hollywood’s top leading ladies (and notoriously bisexual), she starred with such legends as Gary Cooper, John Wayne, and Cary Grant. Defiant in her stance against the Nazis, Marlene chose instead to become an American citizen, join the army and tour with the USO, performing for Allied troops on the front lines for three years.
Sensitive to the times, during a 1960 visit to Israel she asked the audience’s permission before singing in German, (a forbidden language) according to The Central Zionist Archives.
Dietrich’s many activities in wartime were recognized nationally and internationally. In 1945, she was given the title of daughter of the Seventy-first Infantry Regiment of the army. In 1947, she was awarded the Medal of Freedom by the United States government, which is the highest honor that can be bestowed on an American. France gave Dietrich the Legion d’Honneur for her wartime activities in the country, and Belgium awarded her the Knight Order of Leopold. This play is very special and should be seen by all. 
Cindy Marinangel is a Lifetime Member of The Actors Studio and is a graduate of the Chicago Second City Conservatory. Marinangel was recently seen in “Beverly Hills Christmas,” a holiday film starring actor Dean Cain that airs seasonally on UPtv. With her international cast and crew she wrote, produced and starred in the award winning short film “Eternal Waltz” which recently screened in festivals in Culver City, Amsterdam and Las Vegas.
Willard Manus is a playwright, journalist and novelist. He is a member of the playwrights/director’s unit of The Actors Studio. His most recent plays are “Joe and Marilyn: A Love Story,” “Frank and Ava” (now a motion picture) and “Who Killed Comrade Rabbit?”   
Russell Daisey is an internationally acclaimed pianist, singer and songwriter. He’s performed at The First Hiroshima International Peace Summit (onstage with the Dalai Lama); the Palais des Congres in Paris; before President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Ellie Wiesel, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Betty Williams.
* Editor's note - The producers are seeking angel investors to take the play to the next level of a run in New York. Bookings across the country and Europe are also welcome. Reviews, show information and booking inquiries can be found on the Dietrich website:  https://www.dietrichplay.com/
