Marion Martin in Hips, Harmony & Hitler
Hips, Harmony & Hitler is a stirring spectacle driven by unforgettable tunes and glamour, along with colourful costuming and the unique talents and distinctive personalities of ‘Our Gracie’ (Gracie Fields), ‘Marlene’ (Marlene Dietrich), and ‘The Brazilian Bombshell’ (Carmen Miranda) all brought to life on stage by Marion Martin in a performance that holds your attention from start to finish.
The music is touching and engaging, and Marion’s portrayal of the characters makes it an act you won’t want to miss. The show pays homage to a bleak time in our history while simultaneously reminding us about the vital role these three extraordinary women played in the momentous business of uplifting public morale during the darkest days of World War II.
The footage of World War II adds to the excitement of the show, but it’s the music itself that truly soars as its marvellously talented leading lady unleashes the kind of vocal magic that needs no bolstering. Marion Martin brings these personalities, the glamour, excitement and the voices of Gracie, Marlene and Carmen splendidly to life and sweeps you away to a time nostalgically remembered by many.
Wonderfully realised by Marion Martin’s irresistible and sophisticated performance, one magnificent song after another completely captures the mood and spirit of an extraordinary time and three extraordinary women.
It’s an overwhelming success!
