German singer Katja Ebstein and mimes on a centrespread poster in Bravo of 17 April 1980. Ebstein, an excellent singer, was about to represent West-Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Theater”,a song that borrows heavily from Cabaret (or whastever Cabaret borrowed heavily from). Ebstein finished runner-up (as she did in 1970) to Johnny Logan’s weepie “What’s Another Year”. I blame those mimes.
