BWW Review: Starkly Dark and Raw Revival of CABARET Returns Decadently to the PantagesBWW Review: Starkly Dark and Raw Revival of CABARET Returns Decadently to the Pantages

The subtext being: either compromise or get out if you value your life, the latter, to be sure, the wiser. This is Berlin, circa 1929/30, before Hitler, just as Nazi pressure hits the fan. Now a national tour based on Roundabout Theatre's 2013 revival docks at the Pantages for a mere 3 weeks with a glorious cast headed by Randy Harrison in a big, broad and devilishly fun performance as the Emcee.
