To experience this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama set in World War II Germany, you'll be invited into the ballroom of Berkeley's historic Haba Na Haba House, now transformed into a European cabaret, complete with pianist and club dancers. It's the perfect setting for the incredible true tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, the 65-year-old transgender German who managed to live openly as a woman under the noses of both the Nazis and later, the Communist government. I Am My Own Wife scored two Tonys in its Broadway run, and playwright Doug Wright's powerful story of survival was inspired by conversations with von Mahlsdorf herself.
Run time is 90 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission.
This production is recommended for those ages 13 and older.
