Goodbye, Bäppi La Belle - A cult figure is retiring

Goodbye, Bäppi La Belle - A cult figure is retiring

After almost 28 years, this is the end: Bäppi la Belle, the grande dame of the Frankfurt comedy and cabaret scene, is stepping down. Two years after his 25th stage anniversary and about one year after leaving the Theatrallalla Theater in 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 in which the popular entertainer appeared on stage not only as Bäppi la Belle but also as Angie, Sissy, Marlene, Liza, Zarah and in other roles. But now the all-round artist has realized that the time has come to leave high heels and feather boa in the closet and send Bäppi la Belle into well-deserved retirement. "To put it this way: I'm simply too old for Lady Gaga," Bäppi explains his decision with a wink and adds: "I always say: it's bad when the trannies who copy Cher look older than Cher. And he doesn't want to let it come to that. Events of the last months, especially his stomach reduction, through which he has lost a proud 51 kg, have changed him, says Bäppler-Wolf. Therefore, Bäppi la Belle will from now on spend her retirement in Antibes at the C&ocirc;te d'Azur and will always look back with joy on the last 28 years. With good Gin Tonics on the yacht in front of St. Tropez she is having a good time. The good news: Bäppi stays! We will continue to see him on stage. In addition, his cult figure Lisbeth will continue to do the guided tours and present her Thermomix show at the Historical Museum. And cider landlord Lia will also continue to appear at selected events. Yes, it is a major turning point in the Frankfurt entertainer's artistic career and a farewell that will certainly be hard for many of his fans. But Bäppi wouldn't be Bäppi if he didn't have a few more surprises for his audience in the years to come - from city tours and shows to a new Bond parody! We are curious!</Whoever wants to see Bäppi live again will have the opportunity to do so on the following dates (subject to Corona-related changes): </strong>
