Lucie Pohl : Hi Hitler
Gilded Balloon Teviot, Bristo Square,
2–25 Aug (not 11),
Lucie Pohl was born a German, then was whisked off to New York by her family. An outsider from then on, the story of her formative years as an outsider supplies plenty of material for her excellent one-woman show.
Lucie is a funky performer, & such is her command of both the stage & alternative voices, at times I felt as if I was watching a play with a cast of several characters. The journey she takes us on is quite heartwarming, & one has to feel for her as the teenage Lucie returns to study where she thought was home – Berlin – but yet again feels like an outsider.
A very pleasant way to pass an hour indeed. FOUR STARS
