There was a lot to love about San Pedro Theatre Club's Cabaret. The atmosphere of the theatre itself is very cool. (However, there wasn't much leg room once I got to my seat, and from the back row, I could not see the actors feet, despite the fact that it is a very small theatre.)
I loved the band, which is up a level and to the side of the stage. You can see them even before the house is open and they play preshow music, which gave included songs from the next SPTC show, Man of La Mancha. Very clever. It made me excited for the next show, even before seeing Cabaret.
I loved the cast of this show. Drew Fitzsimmons was deliciously naughty as the MC. Michelle Zelina and Dean Patrick Gallagher were enjoyable in their roles as Sally Bowles and Cliff Bradshaw. Surprisingly, one of my favorite cast members played a pretty small role, but her stage presence is stellar! Jazzy Jones, who played Lulu, one of the dancers, has a smile that could light up the sky, and anytime she was on stage, my eyes were drawn to her. Joan Perkins and David Fairchild were delightful as Herr Scultz and Fraulein Schneider.
All of the leads had very powerful singing voices. I suspect that the show could have been done without microphones, perhaps giving the show a more authentic feel. When the singers started belting, it was a bit overpowering.
The ending of this show was very powerful. I've seen Cabaret before, at other theatres, but the ending of this particular production was something special. I loved it. I'm very excited about San Pedro Theatre Company, and I'm looking forward to seeing more musical theatre!

This was a very good production done on a small stage with a creative set and props. The cast sang and acted well with the lead actress channeling Liza Minnelli. The show could use some prudent editing as it runs nearly 3 hours long. "Cabaret"...continued
