The musical theatre treasure CABARET kicks off the Marriott Theatre's 2014 season, opening tonight, January 22 and running through March 16 at 10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire. CABARET is Kander and Ebb's legendary musical about English cabaret performer Sally Bowles, American writer Clifford Bradshaw, and the decadence of 1929 Berlin. The production will be directed byDavid H. Bell with choreography by Matt Raftery and Musical Direction by Ryan T. Nelson. BroadwayWorld has a look at Megan Sikora and the rest of the cast in action!

With mounting fear and uncertainty outside, your Emcee welcomes you into the Kit Kat Klub and a world where your troubles are left at the door. CABARET is written by Joe Masteroff with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The classic score includes "Maybe This Time", "Money", and of course, "Cabaret".
