While in Paris in 1988, a young cabaret singer named Ute Lemper received a late-night phone call from German singer and actress Marlene Dietrich.Assuming the role of Dietrich, Lemper began her performance by reenacting parts of the phone call between lively verses of "One For My Baby".Dietrich saw the irony in now singing for Germans.Toward the show's end, Lemper shed Dietrich's persona to tell the tale of her own career, heavily influenced by Dietrich.In 1992, Lemper was cast to depict Lola in a Berlin production of "Blue Angel," playing the very same role that started Dietrich's fame, but just six days before opening night, Dietrich passed away and Lemper attended her funeral. As a final tribute to her muse, Lemper sang "Falling in Love Again," a merry thank you to what she considered an important moment in her life and all Dietrich had achieved in her time.
