Broadway meets Germany
Germans love many of the hit Broadway Plays that we do. On this page you will find some videos from plays that we became very fond of. Sometimes it is impossible to translate theatre pieces and songs on a "word by word" basis we look at "How they would best capture a feeling or mood. Many of us know the songs by heart. Try to see how they are translated into German. Enjoy the wonderful performances of Dutch superstar Willemijn Verkaik in both Mama Mia and WickedMamma Mia
Did you know that ABBA was a very frequent visitor to Germany. During the mid 70's they were on practically every television station. They sang many of their songs in German. I had the opportunity to see them in Frankfurt in 1976. I was the only one there besides my friend that did not have SPANDEX on (Have to draw the line somewhere), The first 5 selections are videos from the play in Stuttgart. The ones that follow are soundtracks. Enjoy (Lyrics will be posted soon)Durch meine Finger rinnt die Zeit
