- A new musical - in development -
Book by Roberto Trippini & Georg Kajanus with Barbie Wilde
From an original story by Georg Kajanus
Lyrics and Music by Georg Kajanus
1946, Marseille - one of the most notorious cities in the world. The war still casts its heavy shadow. There are accounts to settle, wounds to heal and lives blighted by great loves cut short. But life goes on, with a renewed hunger for fun and pleasure. Welcome to the fleshpots of Marseille's fabled Red Light District! Welcome to L'Orchidée Marseilles premier house of vaudeville and burlesque, whose dancing girls are renowned for the extras they bestow. Everybody's welcome especially an American drifter with a hole in his heart and guilt rattling around in his head. Sullen, silent, mysterious, he is simply known by his nom de guerre, "Sailor" a disgraced wartime hero unable to shake off the obsession for the woman he loved and lost. And then her younger sister shows up at L'Orchidée looking for work.
"Sailor" is a tale of wartime loss and adventure, but also of redemption and love resurgent.
