International Revue

Posted on January 19, 2023

This week in 1961, film legend and actress Marlene Dietrich made her first public appearance in Boston at the Colonial with her famed International Revue. Dietrich employed Burt Bacharach as her musical arranger. Together they refined her nightclub act into a more ambitious theatrical one-woman show with an expanded repertoire, including songs from her films as well as popular songs of the day.
