Prepare to meet pimps, lovers, angels and devils as Ratzke takes you back to his cabaret roots in this intimate performance, unleashing songs from Brecht, Bowie, Weill and Wainwright in a dynamic evening. A paragon of contemporary cabaret, Ratzke returns to the Neue Galerie to lure you deep into the European underground nightlife. This acclaimed artist has been described as “Unique, bizarre, ultra-extravagant...” (The Advertiser).
