Mark Nadler...Music From the Weimar and Beyond

Music From the Weimar and Beyond and “I’m A Stranger Here Myself” are two films that archive an illustrated conversation about the music of the Weimar-Cabaret era with writer, producer, entertainer Mark Nadler (25 minutes), and present a filmed version of his successful Off Broadway Show (88 minutes).

Here is the Times Review of the show: 

Nadler describes the Weimar Era as “14 years of unprecedented artistic and sexual freedom, a sort of anything goes Eden before Hitler and the Nazis took over”. Using songs by German and French songwriters who composed during the years of the Weimar Republic, Nadler examines the lives of these composers as well as those of ordinary German citizens caught up in one of the most intriguing and emotionally charged periods of the Twentieth Century.

Here is a FULL SCREENER of the 30 minute film with Mark Nadler discussing the origins of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Adolf Hitler's NAZI Party.


In a filmed and richly illustrated archive conversation, Nadler delves into the mysteries of the Weimer Cabaret era and its heros and heroines including Kurt Weil, Lotte Lenya, Frederich Hollaender, Bertolt Brecht, and Marlene Dietrich...all of whom escaped Hitler's Germany and would up working in the United States...strangers here themselves. 

Screen the full 88 minute performance film "I'm A Stranger Here Myself" here: 

The films are tempered by an undercurrent of isolation that jibes well with the subject. Discussion of the outsider status of many prominent artists of pre-Nazi Germany—many of them gay, Jewish or both—is juxtaposed with details from Nadler’s Jewish family and his own history as an entertainer. The show itself places Nadler in front of a projected montage of imagery that includes historical photos from the 1920s and 30s as well as gently evocative film clips from the Iowa-born performer's early years in New York. "I don't know who I belong to," he sings, in a recurring motif. "I believe I belong to myself, all alone." Reflections on pre WWII Germany and the roots of hatred and anti-semitism today come to life.
