He was well on his way to becoming a celebrated pop star - until the moment he decided against it.
Martin Perkmann from Bolzano reached the final of the Austrian TV casting show "Starmania" in 2002 to great applause and from one day to the next he was South Tyrol's greatest musical hope. But what does it do to you when you suddenly find yourself in the limelight? What goes on behind the scenes of such a show? And what does the emotional chaos that Martin experienced during his time on "Starmania" sound like?
The musical "Starmania" takes us on a journey from the first application to the greatest moment of success, the weeks of inner struggle and the final victory in front of an audience of millions.
"Sternmanie" is an absolutely autobiographical and relentlessly intimate musical that gives us insights into never-before-told episodes of one of the most interesting stories in the South Tyrolean music world. Martin Perkmann has once again immersed himself in his own story, returned with many new songs and is now bringing them to the Carambolage stage.
Martin (as himself), actress Brigitte Knapp (as everyone else) and guitarist Chris Kaufmann (as the live musician) will be performing on stage.
