The Crazy and Shady CAREER of Miss Erna DIE2 - Verein für Theater

By Karl Satzinger By Karl Satzinger By Gabriela Brandenstein By Petra Torky

Show Press

“Erna makes our heads spin: Mercedes Echerer shines in “The crazy and shady Career of Miss Erna”, a witty dramatisation of the novel by Robert Neumann.”
— Die Presse
“How Echerer – with the splendid accompaniment of the fabulous violinist Aliosha Biz – switches between comic and tragedy, how she portrays an unrelenting woman with a sense of survival is simply sensational.”
“Go there, see it, laugh along, and think about it!”
— Kronen Zeitung

About the show

A woman makes her career – but more accidentally than intentionally. Erna, a girl from the countryside, with meagre perspectives but a fine sense for people and possibilities, ends up spinning the big wheel of politics and economy. Unplanned and unexpected, she climbs the ladder to the top. Mercedes Echerer is Erna. And she is all of the 31 men and women that Erna encounters along her adventurous path. A fulminant solo evening full of laughter and contemplation and a crazy story all over Europe.

Based on the novel Karriere by Robert Neumann, adaptation for theater by Verena Kurth
