See how choreographer Lainie Sakakura reconstructed Bob Fosse's original choreography for "Mein Herr" from the 1972 film for Goodspeed Musicals' production of Cabaret.

The Kit Kat Klub comes alive for the first time on the Goodspeed stage now through July 3 at The Goodspeed in East Haddam, Conn.

This unique production also features Bob Fosse's original choreography of "Mein Herr" as reconstructed by choreographer Lainie Sakakura. Ms. Sakakura was given special permission from the Verdon/Fosse Legacy to reconstruct the number for this production due to her depth of knowledge of Fosse techniques and specialized training in his work.
