Goodbye, Bäppi La Belle - A cult figure retires

Goodbye, Bäppi La Belle - A cult figure retires

After almost 28 years, it's over: Bäppi la Belle, the grande dame of the Frankfurt comedy and cabaret scene, is stepping down. Two years after celebrating 25 years on stage and about a year after saying goodbye to the Theatrallalla Theater in the Nordend, Thomas Bäppler-Wolf has decided to say goodbye to his stage alter ego. It all started in 1993: When Thomas Bäppler-Wolf was looking for a stage name for his own travesty show, he drove past the Festhalle with an acquaintance, where a concert by soul singer Patti La Belle was announced. The perfect inspiration for the young dance teacher, who was only called Bäppi by his friends: Bäppi la Belle was born.

Numerous shows followed, with the popular entertainer taking the stage not only as Bäppi la Belle, but also as Angie, Sissy, Marlene, Liza, Zarah and in other roles. But now the all-round performer has realised that the time has come to leave the high heels and feather boa in the cupboard and send Bäppi la Belle into a well-deserved retirement. "To put it this way: I'm just too old for Lady Gaga", Bäppi explains his decision with a wink and adds: "I always say: it's bad when the trannies who imitate Cher look older than Cher." And he does not want it to come so far.

Events of the last months, but especially his stomach reduction, through which he has lost a proud 51kg, have changed him, says Bäppler-Wolf. So from now on Bäppi la Belle will spend her retirement life in Antibes on the Côte d'Azur, always thinking back with pleasure to the last 28 years. She takes it easy with good gin and tonics on the yacht off St Tropez. The good news: Bäppi will stay! We will continue to see him on stage. In addition, his cult figure Lisbeth will continue to give tours at the Historical Museum and present her Thermomix show. And cider host Lia will also continue to make appearances at select events. Yes, it's a big break in the Frankfurt entertainer's artistic career and a farewell that will surely be difficult for many of his fans. But Bäppi wouldn't be Bäppi if he didn't have a few surprises in store for his audience in the years to come - from city tours and shows to a new Bond parody! We're excited!
