Myriam Phiro: “Becoming Marlene Dietrich” in the Theater

April 13 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Don’t miss Myriam Phiro in the Birdland Theater for one night only!

Myriam Phiro: Becoming Marlene Dietrich

Ms. Phiro will be accompanied by her stellar and long-tenured trio: Hyuna Park (piano), Elias Bailey (bass) & guests.

After multiple sold out performances of her acclaimed tribute to Edith Piaf “Phiro chante Piaf,” Ms. Phiro returns to Birdland with a new show about an icon referred to as “Queen of the World,” the one and only Marlene Dietrich.

Dietrich was a pioneer in asserting a woman’s right in controlling her image and defying social conventions of the 1930’s. She is recognized for denouncing fascism and embodying a uniquely enigmatic sex appeal. Perhaps most fascinating was her courage to demand the respect that women were denied in this time. By gaining the adoration of the American public in spite of challenging conventional moralities with her gender-bending roles, she became the epitome of glamor and a trendsetting style icon. Marlene exhibited an unapologetic control over her career and image while being featured in over 50 films and performing countless cabaret shows in a career lasting over 60 years.

Myriam Phiro is known for her poignant renditions of Dietrich’s counterpart, Edith Piaf. The songstress is ecstatic about this new show that combines elements of Piaf and Dietrich’s time period and explores the rumored scandalous relationship between the two. Phiro, deemed to be “the perfect re-enactment of a mix between Edith Piaf and Marilyn Monroe; deep, powerful, fun and sexy all at once,” by Miguel Dominguez; NYC Culture & Style Magazine, will combine her talents for this spectacular event. A storyteller at heart, she will convey some of the most dramatic moments of Dietrich’s life and legacy while unveiling some of the diva’s mysteries.
