& Sophie" is a homage to one of the greatest scientists in history:
Her story is connected to the story of Sophie in the present. She bares
the dream of becoming a great dancer. They both tell through their
life's story, that it is always worth to fight for your dreams. The
musical has great songs and ballads, cool dances and beautiful
The musical is a cooperation between the "Marie-Curie-Gymnasium"

was a pleasure for me to work with my students from Dallgow-Döberitz and
Falkensee on the great project "Marie
& Sophie". Despite difficulties we could celebrate a wonderful
premiere on the 18th of June in 2016 that I will always remember as one
of my greatest moments as author. The musical has been revised with new songs,
scenes and dances for 2017 and we hope that we can perform it in Paris one day!
