Mae West: Sex Act

Karen Kohler, a leggy blonde who performs numbers in three languages about women in states of heat, selected one of MAE WEST's signature songs for her current show in New York City.
• • Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Karen Kohler moved to the USA when she was a child.
• • Her new two-act show “Little Death: Songs of Coming and Going” begins with a sultry first half "Sex Act" and ends with a somber, contemplative "Death Act." The frisky first portion contains material such as Mae West's "A Man What Takes His Time" which Mae sang in her classic motion picture "She Done Him Wrong" [1933]. Another selection in "Sex Act" is “Gretchen am Spinnrade,” Schubert’s setting of Goethe’s poetic lament of a woman haunted by the kisses of her dead lover.
• • If Election Day wears you out, then you might want to revive your spirits by seeing Karen Kohler perform "Sex Act" on Wednesday 5 November 2008. On Thursday 6 November 2008, she will do “Death Act”; on 18 November 2008 both acts will be presented.
• • The Zipper Factory: 336 West 37th Street, New York, NY 10018 T. 212-352-3101.
