The Showtime documentary “reveals Johansen’s immense influence, transcending the walls of music as a window into New York’s artistic and cultural development.”

Personality Crisis: One Night Only is framed around an intimate cabaret performance filmed in January 2020 at New York’s Café Carlyle.

Scorsese said of the film: “I’ve known David Johansen for decades, and his music has been a touchstone ever since I listened to it while making Dolls. Pretty streets.

“Then and now, David’s music captures the energy and excitement of New York. I see him perform often, and over the years I’ve come to know the depth of his musical inspirations. When I saw his performance at Café Carlyle, I knew I had to film it because it was so extraordinary to see the evolution of his life and his musical talent in such an intimate setting. For me, the performance captured the true emotional potential of the live music experience.

The documentary is produced by Scorsese and Sikelia Productions with Brian Glazer and Ron Howard at Imagine Documentaries.

Personality Crisis: One Night Only will be published on the 14th April on Showtime in the US.

This is Scorsese’s 17th documentary, which includes his previous works George Harrison: Living in the Material World and Rolling Thunder Revue: The Bob Dylan Story.

The director’s next feature film is Flower Moon Killers Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, which will be released later this year.
