A Call Girl Named Rosemarie

 

continued

Rosemarie's fatal flaw, however, is that she is not, at heart, a ruthless entrepreneur. She forms a personal attachment to one of her clients, and she hopes to be married and accepted into legitimate bourgeois society. She goes so far as to show up at a cocktail party — to which she has been explicitly not invited — where all of her clients are in attendance with their wives. Rosemarie proceeds to take each man aside and threaten him with exposure if he does not dance with her. Her failure to understand her place in the capitalist system — or, as one man describes it, the link between her bed and Germany's economic miracle — proves to be her undoing.

A Call Girl Named Rosemarie, based on an actual scandal that took place in Germany in 1957, is at the Michigan Theater Monday and Tuesday, February 3 and 4.    (end of article)
