BWW Review: CABARET National Tour at Durham Performing Arts CenterBWW Review: CABARET National Tour at Durham Performing Arts Center
by Jeffrey Kare - Apr 20, 2016

Based on John Van Druten's play I Am a Camera which was adapted from Christopher Isherwood's short story Goodbye to Berlin, Cabaret is based in the nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub as the Nazis were rising to power in Berlin back in 1931. The action is overseen by a Master of Ceremonies with the club serving as a metaphor for some of the ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany. The story revolves around 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Clifford Bradshaw. A sub-plot involves a doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fraulein Schneider and her suitor Herr Schultz. (more...)

BWW Review: CABARET A Dark Glistening GemBWW Review: CABARET A Dark Glistening Gem
by Frank Benge - Mar 30, 2016

Based on Christopher Isherwood's novella Goodbye to Berlin (1939) and the subsequent 1951 play by John Van Druten entitled I Am a Camera, CABARET is a musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb with a book by Joe Masteroff that opened on Broadway in 1966. The production was a hit that was subsequently made into the 1972 film by Bob Fosse. In 1993, Sam Mendes re-imagined the material for a new production in London's West End. Mendes' conception was very different from any previous revival. This production was the basis for Roundabout Theatre Company's 1998 and subsequent 2014 revivals, the latter of which is the version currently on tour and being presented at Bass Concert Hall by Lexus Broadway In Austin.

BWW Review: CABARET, Ramirez Made Sally Bowles Her Own!BWW Review: CABARET, Ramirez Made Sally Bowles Her Own!
by Linda Ann Watt - Mar 23, 2016

This weekend I visited a little gem filled with history, tucked away within a short drive from Charlotte, the Meroney Theater in Salisbury, NC. The original home to vaudeville and now home to The Piedmont Players. This group put on a sublimely wonderful production of CABARET. The cast was lead by Emily Ramirez, who played the promiscuously innocent, Sally Bowles. I couldn't take my eyes off Ramirez. She captured the character of Bowles' sexual persona onstage with charged dancing and emotionally connected vocals. (more...)

by Valeria Venturelli - Mar 9, 2016

Dal 2 al 4 marzo il tour italiano di 'CABARET' della Compagnia della Rancia ha fatto tappa al Teatro Nuovo di Verona. Il musical del 1966 di John Kander e Fred Ebb, ispirato al romanzo 'Addio a Berlino' di Christopher Isherwood, e stato tradotto in italiano e riadattato dalla compagnia di Saverio Marconi e da mesi gira l'Italia in un tour carico di successi. La trama, ambientata nella Berlino del 1931, ruota attorno alle vicende del Kit Kat Klub, del suo Emcee (Maestro delle Cerimonie), della ballerina e attrice inglese vorrei-ma-non-posso Sally Bowles e del giovane insegnante americano Cliff Bradshaw appena giunto in citta. La storia d'amore tra i due si alterna ai numerosi numeri di cabaret che animano il Kit Kat Klub, mentre il clima politico e l'avanzata del nazismo vanno lentamente ad invadere ogni aspetto della vita dei protagonisti.
