Cabaret

June 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Book by Joe Masteroff,  Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb, Directed by Brian Kelly

Cabaret, the ground-breaking musical by the team of Kander and Ebb, based on a play by John van Druten, cannot be considered an “old chestnut” despite its age. It’s a theatrical experience that re-imagines itself for every time. Sometimes it’s a gawdy glitter ball, other times a dark menacing warning. At its core is an honest, yearning love story of a naïve writer who falls for a young woman who performs at the Kit Kat Klub, a hideaway that exists outside of time (or at least pretends to). It’s 1929 in Germany and people can feel the world changing around them. And at the epicenter is Berlin, which welcomes neophyte Cliff, seeking motivation for his novel. Sally moved to Berlin to run away from her old life. They meet-cute at the Kit Kat Klub, but things get difficult for them rather quickly. The score is filled with a rich variety of music: sweet, ironic, bawdy, fun, and also melancholy and sinister. In this web of social commentary, high living and music, this musical also brings us face-to-face with our fears and the possibility of our better selves.
