    Total Verrückt!

    Presented by at Charlestown Working Theater

    May 24 - May 25, 2013


    Total Verrückt!

    Have you heard the tale of the Jewish diseuse? The one where she wanders around the concentration camp singing her arias as she tries to escape the transport? Total Verrückt! tells her story, with inspiration from the work of Jewish Dutch poet Etty Hillesum, Jewish cabaret stars Max Ehrlich, Johnny & Jones, and Dora Gerson. Taking its name from the 1944 production performed by inmates at Westerbork transit camp, Total Verrückt! translates as “totally crazy.” In this ghostly cabaret, watch this imprisoned actress sing and dance to prove that she exists.
