marlene_dietrichMarlene Dietrich was a European film sensation, Hollywood’s highest paid actress, a lifelong fashion icon, an unceasing USO entertainer, an awarded humanitarian, an international philanthropist, a Medal of Freedom recipient, a L├ęgion d’Honneur honoree,
an Academy Award nominee, a Tony Award winner,  the Patron Saint of cabaret, a bewitching singer, a natural dancer and an International diva.

The very young Justyna Kostek is following in the great diva’s footsteps.

Born and raised in Poland, where she began her work in experimental theatre at a very young age, Justyna Kostek then established the successful and award-winning theatre company, Atelier Teatral, in Denmark.   She is already making her mark in the New York theatre scene while preparing, with Mr. Conant, DIETRICH RIDES AGAIN for an Off-Broadway move as well as sifting through the mounting interest in a National Tour.
Divas are born to achieve.
