Past Event Off the Wall 2013: Tammie Fay Starlite: Chelsea Mädchen 

CAL_20121113_tammyfae_main

In Chelsea Mädchen, the performance artist and country chanteuse-cum-evangelist, Tammy Faye Starlite, who has channeled Tammy Faye Baker and Tammy Wynette in wonderfully subversive cabaret performances in New York and LA, rediscovers Nico, a German actress and model who was one of Andy Warhol’s more popular “superstars” and briefly fronted The Velvet Underground. With dialogue based on actual encounters Nico had with journalists, the show includes a brilliant repertoire of songs including VU classic’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror,” “Femme Fatale” and “All Tomorrow’s Parties”, as well as notable Nico covers of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” Rodgers and Hart’s “My Funny Valentine,” Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep It With Mine” and The Doors’ “The End.”

Directed by Michael Schiralli; musical director is Keith Hartel (True Love, the Richard Lloyd group).
