Quotes & Highlights

“Really, why are you sitting idly in your room when Reprise Theatre Company is presenting such a satisfying revival of Cabaret!”—Charles McNulty, _Los Angeles Times _
“Brilliant!” This is a Cabaret for the books! Don’t miss it!!””—Don Grigware, _BroadwayWorld _
“Dodge’s revival feels remarkably fresh while astutely sidestepping layers of directorial indulgence. Her consummate resurrection of a classic satisfies on all levels.”—Les Spindle, Back Stage (Critic’s Pick)

Description

Willkommen to Germany in the 1930s, a time of excess for those who seek out such pleasures, and a time of fears as the Nazi Party begins to take political power. Cliff Bradshaw is an American writer in search of meaning in his life, and he seeks them out in the dancehalls and clubs that make up Berlin’s seedy underground nightlife. Along his journey, he encounters the enigmatic, 19-year-old Sally Bowles who introduces him to the desperate, gaudy and haunting world of the Cabaret. Featuring some of musical theatre’s most famous songs, including “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,”  “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” and “Cabaret,” this show is an enduring classic.
