Hani Furstenberg Joins CABARET as 'Fraulein Kost' Tonight

Roundabout Theatre Company weclomes Hani Furstenberg in the role of "Fraulein Kost" tonight, December 22. Original cast member Gayle Rankin played her final performance on Sunday, December 21. Cabaret is playing a limited engagement on Broadway through March 29, 2015 starring Alan Cumming as "Emcee" (through March 29) and Emma Stone as "Sally Bowles" (through February 1).

Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb's Tony-winning musical Cabaret is directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed/choreographed by Rob Marshall.

Hani Furstenberg was recently seen Off-Broadway: in Lucy Thurber's Stay and Adam Rapp's Though The Yellow Hour (Rattlestick Theater). She is known for her American film work in The Loneliest Planet and won the Israeli Oscar for her role in the film Campfire.

The Cabaret cast also features 2014 Tony nominee Linda Emond as Fraulein Schneider, 2014 Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Herr Schultz, Bill Heck as Cliff, Aaron Krohn as Ernst and Gayle Rankin as Fraulein Kost.

CABARET features a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. It is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

The Cabaret Kit Kat Klub boys & girls are: Will Carlyon, Kaleigh Cronin, Caleb Damschroder, Benjamin Eakeley, Andrea Goss, Leeds Hill, Kristin Olness, Kelly Paredes, Jessica Pariseau, Dylan Paul, Evan Siegel, Stacey Sipowicz and Katrina Yaukey.

CABARET is playing a limited engagement through March 29, 2015 at the newly transformed Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street).

For this production, Mr. Mendes and Mr. Marshall converted Studio 54 into the gritty Kit Kat Klub with Cabaret-type seating as well as traditional theatre seating, to recreate the decadent environment of the notorious pre-war Berlin Nightclub.

The design team includes set and club design by Robert Brill, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari and sound design by Brian Ronan. Patrick Vaccariello is the Musical Director.

CABARET features some of the best-known songs in musical theatre, including "Willkommen," "Maybe This Time" and "Cabaret." John Kander and Fred Ebb are two of the most successful and prolific collaborators in the American Theatre and are currently represented on Broadway with the award-winning revival of Chicago.
