Singer Heesters, 103, plans Dutch show

Dutch singer and actor Johan Heesters (103), who carved out a career in Germany during WWII, wants to stage a show in his home town of Amersfoort, news agency ANP reports.

Heesters has not performed in the Netherlands since the public rejected his portrayal of anti-Nazi commander von Trapp in the Sound of Music in 1964.
