BWW Reviews: CABARET Sizzles and Sears in Mad Horse Theatre-Razer Entertainment's ProductionBWW Reviews: CABARET Sizzles and Sears in Mad Horse Theatre-Razer Entertainment's Production
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(8/18/2014) - The new production of Cabaret mounted by South Portland's Mad Horse Theatre together with Razer Entertainment, sizzles with tension and sears with emotion. The dark,edgy Kander-Ebb musical presented in this intimate space allows the audience identification in a manner so powerful as to make one feel he is seeing the work for the first time. Following on the heels of the hugely successful Grey Gardens, director-choreographer Raymond Marc (Ray) Dumont and the Mad Horse company have ventured for the second time this summer into musical theatre, and the results are stunning! Not only is it refreshing to hear a musical unmiked, but the fifty-seat black box allows for an experience that is up close, personal, and unsparingly gripping.
