Description

Take your seat at the “Kit Kat Klub,” the perfectly marvelous cabaret where an aspiring American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, encounters British singer Sally Bowles. As they join in the pursuit of a life of pleasure in Weimar Berlin, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter as Hitler rises to power. The play is fueled by an overriding, infectious mood of fickle, live-for-the-moment, bitter-sweet desperation battling a society’s unwillingness to acknowledge what is right in front of them.

Cabaret is directed by Wendy Knox, with musical direction by Michael Croswell and Melissa Hart, and coreography by Bonnie Bottoms. It features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and music by John Kander. The 1966 Broadway production was a hit, and spawned a 1972 film. The classic songs featured in the score are, among others, “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Tomorrow Belongs to Me,” and, of course, “Cabaret.”

The production will feature Bradley Greenwald as the Emcee and Melissa Hart (who performed Sally Bowles in Hal Prince’s original 1966 Broadway staging and was nominated for a Tony for her work in Georgy Girl) as Frau Schneider. The acting company also features Patrick Bailey (Herr Schultz), Sara Richardson (Sally Bowles) and Max Wojtanowicz (Cliff) along with an ensemble that includes Maria Asp, Joseph Botten, Joey Clark, Michael Davidovich, Tessa Flynn, Leif Jurgensen, Barbara Meyer, Peter Middlecamp, Jonathan Peterson, Jennifer Phillips, Kimberly Richardson, James Rodriguez, Anna Sundberg, Eve Tugwell, Breanna Weitzel and Joetta Wright.
