What a great reimagining of prewar Germany. I've seen this produced at least three times and the authenticity of this version is off the charts. Plus (sorry Lauren) this is the most lovable and relatable Sally Bowles I've seen. Top hats off to...continued

This theater company worked hard to put on a well done performance. However, I have seen many local productions and this one needed a little more "umph" for me. I enjoyed the second half more than the first. There were some decent voices and one...continued

Some very good songs, and both the MC and the English woman were excellent (sorry, no cast list). But some not so great acting from some of the performers keeps it at 4 stars.

Enjoyed the dress rehearsal, returned for the show. Overall very enjoyable again. Most performances were terrific, but the portrayal of the Cliff Bradshaw character was distractingly mediocre acting - and a few of the singing voices were weak -...continued

Once again, this L.A. company is bringing a passionate and well-delivered rendition of a classic musical to us here in S.F., as they did with Hair last year. I highly recommend seeing it. If you're not familiar with the show, this is a great...continued

I didn't know what to expect going to a dress rehearsal of Cabaret, but having enjoyed The Tribe's production of Hair last year, I gave it a try. And it was wonderful!!! The only version of Cabaret I had even seen was the movie with Liza Minnelli...continued

Another great production from the Tribe! Great acting all round and several excellent singers as well. Excellent choreography! They breathed a modern consciousness into this pre- WWII war story, while remaining true to the original. And the...continued

Strong troupe, great voices, fun attitude pulled off a difficult show with only 11 cast members -- even in dress rehearsal. Tomorrow belongs to them!

Very interesting play. The actors were intense in their portrayal of this version on Cabaret. Good use of a small stage area.

Very cleverly done. Took the audience from bawdy, carefree, upbeat days while introducing the fearful manipulation and influence of the rise of the Nazi party becoming darker and through to the powerful end. Amazing what can be accomplished with a...continued

I think they did a great job with limited resources mostly the staging. The performances were outstanding and the scenes in the Cabaret were really well done. Very talented cast.

Fun. Moving. Gut wrenching. Real.

The sociopolitical themes of pre-Nazi / Nazi Germany ring true for the divisive tones facing our nation today. The actors accurately delivered this pervasive message of hate, the frustration and angst of having...continued

Impactful performance by the actors. Even for those who have seen Cabaret in Theater and in Cinema., their performance will delight you.

A truly amazing performance. The venue is very intimate and there is not a bad seat in the house. If you thought cabaret was only for the big stage, go see this show...you will laugh much and maybe even tear up a bit but you will never forget this...continued

This was a very original and heartfelt performance of Cabaret. The theater itself is rather not very comfortable and got very stuffy. Also very small chairs! But definitely worth it.

We went to a dress rehearsal, and it was really well done. They made a comment about some kinks to iron out, but I didn't spot any. I found it very moving - the sympathetic characters really draw you in. The main performers were very good. It was...continued

Terrific show. Talented actors with strong singing voices. For a tiny theatre space, well-staged. Will watch for other Bindlestiff productions. Well done!
