Blonde Venus 
A fancy gin joint with a jazz jungle onstage and drums beating out a rumbling New Orleans groove. A troupe of Josephine Baker-style dancers stalk in, with massive afros, warpaint and spears, marching a gorilla. Surrounded, the gorilla takes off its head. It’s Marlene Dietrich! She puts on a huge blonde wig and sings a song about hot voodoo. And that’s just the first number.
