Under the direction of Josh Epstein, this much-anticipated production of Cabaret is an homage to productions of the past in an unabashed celebration of what is considered, ‘a perfect show’.
It’s 1929 and young American writer Cliff Bradshaw has just arrived in Berlin, a city where the party never ends. At the notorious Kit Kat Klub he meets the beguiling chanteuse Sally Bowles and his life is turned upside down. Meanwhile, Hitler’s grip on the country is tightening — Cliff’s German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and Jewish fruit vendor Herr Schultz are forced to face a harsh reality, and even the Kit Kat Klub’s gender-bending Emcee must acknowledge the revolutionary voices of a new Germany.
The student cast brings the decadent and dangerous Weimer era to life, with a creative team that includes musical direction by Christopher King and choreography by Shelley Stewart Hunt, set design by Drew Facey, costume design by Amy McDougall and lighting design by Itai Erdal.
