Psychoanalysis as a Broadway show spectacle

Torn between various covers, men and life plans, Liza Elliott, the successful editor of a fashion magazine, falls unrestrained into a burnout hole. She puts herself in the capable hands of a psychoanalyst who delves into her feelings by way of her dreams. In Kurt Weill's 1941 Broadway musical, Liza Elliot's dream world becomes an over-the-top revue spectacle featuring a full symphony orchestra. Following his successful production of ‹Cage of Fools (La cage aux folles)› at Theater Basel, Martin G. Berger stages this Swiss premiere. Singer and actress Delia Mayer plays the lead role alongside Stefan Kurt.
