politisches Kabarett

We went to a political cabaret on Karl-Marx-Allee, the former Stalin-Allee of the DDR. It was a really fun experience, three really talented actresses did the whole thing, with a mix of songs and skits thematizing various contemporary political issues: the German school system, immigration and politics, military spending, elitist tax evasion, US relations, East- and West-German relations... The title was "Deutschland peinlich Vaterland" (peinlich = embarassing) Really funny and at times really scathing satire.
