A must for David Bowie Fans – Sven Ratzke Starman
LONDON DEBUT AT LONDON WONDERGROUND’S SPIEGEL TENT
Starman, the hit show from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, debuts in London this June for three dates from 7th – 9th at the London Wonderground’s Spiegel Tent. Starring Sven Ratzke, the international supernova of cabaret mixes Bowie with his own unique style of storytelling and reinterpretations of the star’s legendary music.
The show combines many of Bowie’s famous numbers such as “Space Oddity,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Heroes,” and “Rock and Roll Suicide” with classic album tracks plus inspired original songs by Ratzke and Rachelle Garniez. More than a mere tribute show, Starman is a one-man rock musical with unique characters and bold reinventions of glam rock classics. We hope Bowie would approve!
Ratzke, the transgressive European entertainer extraordinaire is internationally recognised for the title role in the first-ever Berlin production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. John Cameron Mitchell, the musical’s creator and the original star, declared “Sven is the best Hedwig I’ve ever seen.” The Netherlands-based entertainer has performed worldwide, with sold-out shows at Lincoln Center in New York at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the famous Berliner Ensemble in Berlin.
