Berlin, February 1933, the new German leadership orders the closure of all cabarets. But Felix, the emcee of the depraved Fabulett, still has a story to tell. He has felt different all his life – as a son, as a soldier and as a lover – and now has to abandon the only place where he has ever felt like he belongs.
Set at the transition from one of the most liberal societies with the world’s first gay rights movement, where the first queer anthem was composed and one of the first gay themed movies was made, to one of the biggest tragedies in human history, Fabulett 1933 deals with the fragility of achievements of society and the struggle of visibility. The one-person musical created and performed by Michael Trauffer, under the musical direction of Sarah Morrison, features music, ideas and lives classified as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis, as well as original songs.
