'Cabaret' At Caldwell Seeks Holocaust Survivors For Post Matinee Discussions

Upcoming Production of CABARET at the Caldwell Theatre

Seeks Holocaust Survivors to Participate in

Post-Matinee Discussions with Cast & Audience 

The nation was mired in a deep recession with soaring unemployment rates. The people were increasingly disillusioned with a national government paralyzed by partisan strife and under constant attack by a small but growing political movement led by strident extremists. 

It is the background behind the edgy Entre'Acte Theatrix production of CABARET, which will run October 14-24 at the Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton. 

"To bring the meaning and message of CABARET to life, particularly to younger audiences, we are inviting local Holocaust survivors to attend matinee performances of the show on October 16, 17 and 23, and then participate in a post-show feedback session with members of the audience and cast," says producer Vicki Halmos. "CABARET is a wonderful show, but one with disturbing undertones that merit full discussion." 

Accordingly, CABARET is offering free matinee tickets to any Holocaust survivor that is willing to participate in a post-show discussion. All they have to do to be placed on the comp list is send an email to publicist Gary Schweikhart at He will make sure that the comps will be available for pick-up at the box-office prior to the 2 p.m. matinees. Group discounts are also available for Holocaust Survivor groups. 

Just like its recent production of HAIR, the Entre'Acte Theatrix production of CABARET will be directed and choreographed by Kimberly Dawn (KD) Smith, a protégé of the late Broadway wunderkind Michael Bennett. The show stars Leah Sessa as Sally Bowles, Shane Blanford as the MC, Ryan Michael Owens as Cliff, Jeanne McKinnon as Fraulein Schneider and Greg Halmos as Herr Schultz.
