Tony-winning composer and lyricist William Finn (Falsettos, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) based this musical about fear, forgiveness, singing frogs and dancing doughnuts on his own near-death experience. Creatively stifled by his work on a kids' TV show, sarcastic songwriter Gordon Schwinn suddenly collapses from a brain disorder requiring emergency surgery. Schwinn's journey through his ordeal -- which receives varied reception from his partner, mother and publicist -- includes some personal epiphanies and a number of hilarious hallucinations that come to vivid life. This funny theatrical adventure also delivers a touching story about staying true to artistic passion. Learn More

This is what I wrote on Facebook about this show:
We went to the opening night showing here in Sacramento of an old but great musical "CABARET" at The Grange Performing Arts Center at 38th and V Streets. My expectations were not too high (having seen the original both on Broadway and on film) but, wow, was I wrong. It was outstanding! The actors, the dancers, and the band did a magnificent job. I couldn't clap loudly enough for their great performances and attention to detail. Bravo!
In 1930 Christopher Isherwood, a young British writer, traveled to Berlin. It was city at the forefront of modernization and was rife with turmoil. Cabaret, based on Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin, is an exciting and tragically beautiful musical set against the economic crisis, political unrest, and a wild, hedonistic nightlife of Weimar Berlin. Set against the Nazi rise to power, it focuses on patrons and performers at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
The 1966 Broadway production became a hit: 8 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Composer and Lyricist, Director, Choreographer, Scenic Design, Costume Design, Supporting or Featured Actor and Supporting or Featured Actress) The Outer Critics Circle Award for Production, and The New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. It spawned a 1972 film starring Liza Minnelli as well as numerous subsequent productions
