Lyric Stage Presents CABARET in Concert Photo Lyric Stage Presents CABARET in Concert
by Stephi Wild - Jun 2, 2022

BWW Review: CABARET at NM Women's Club Photo BWW Review: CABARET at NM Women's Club
by Jackie Camborde - Mar 15, 2022

Full confession: I was not jumping up and down to see another production of Cabaret. Chalk it up to Cabaret being the show that wouldn't die when I was in college - cast as a chorus member, it was a grueling rehearsal period and extended run, then we won American College Theater Festival for our region and had to come back early from winter break to recreate it, it literally went on for a good two thirds of my sophomore year. Some of the songs can give me PTSD. True fact.
