The Triad NYC
An entertaining musical journey through 1920s Berlin, 1940s and 50s France and contemporary America.
“Adrienne Haan is an exceptional song interpreter with a grand voice!” Berliner Morgenpost
Adrienne Haan, artist-in-residence at New York’s Triad Theater, returns with From Berlin To Broadway, her original solo show she premiered in NYC in 2007.
Ms. Haan is known for creating entertaining class acts in various languages and loves to present known songs as well as lesser known oeuvres while engaging her audiences.
She is thrilled to take her audience on a musical journey through time: Depicting music from 1920s Berlin’s Golden Age, when Marlene Dietrich was discovered as the naughty Lola in Joseph von Sternberg’s Blue Angel that made her a world-star over night, when Germany experimented with democracy during the turbulent times of the Weimar Republic, Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht fought the rising Nazi Regime by creating their most important works, the Threepenny Opera and The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, before continuing her journey to France, when Paris sizzled in the 30s, 40s and 50s, with music by “la môme” Piaf who had a short, exciting affair with Marlene Dietrich, talking about the passionate life of Belgian chansonnier Jacques Brel and his many lovers, continuing to Charles Aznavour and Georges Moustaki, and ending her journey in America, on New York’s Broadway with music by Georges and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and other favorites who have contributed to the Great American Songbook.
