2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd Los Angeles
A smash hit at last season's Hollywood Fringe Festival, Janet Schaphohl's story of identical twins in pre-World War II Germany has been expanded and receives a full production at the Odyssey Theatre. In early 1930s Berlin, the days are growing dark for freedom of expression and for those who don't fit the Nazi ideal of physical purity. Beautiful sisters Magda, a fledgling chanteuse and comedienne at the local cabaret, and Matilde, writer of the satirical songs and comedy for Magda's act, are identical in every way — except one. Identical genetic makeup. Identical humor. Identical dreams for the future. But cerebral palsy affects Matilde's movement and speech, leaving her housebound. Für immer zusammen ("together forever"). For how long will that remain possible? An ultimately chilling tale presented with charm and humor.
