Agnes of God tells the story of a novice nun accused of murdering her newborn baby. A court-appointed psychiatrist, Dr. Martha Livingstone, is charged with the task of assessing the sanity of the young and beautiful Sister Agnes (who insists her baby was the result of an immaculate conception) -- as well as discovering who fathered the child and what events led to its death. But the convent's Mother Superior seems bent on protecting Sister Agnes from the doctor at all costs, arousing the suspicions surrounding her even further. In this explosive production from Bloomington Civic Theatre, all three of these women are forced to face harsh realities as they reexamine the meaning of faith and the power of love. A hit on Broadway, this Tony Award-winning psychological drama was later adapted into the 1985 film starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly. Learn More

Very enjoyable show led by Bradley Greenwald's delightful turn as the decadent Emcee. The cast did an admirable job and the production fit in quite well with the Showboat surroundings. The only mar on the experience was the initial difficulty in finding the parking that was actually close to the venue. However, this was a solid production and I definitely recommend it!!!

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.
