BWW Review: CABARET at Tipi am Kanzleramt - It's all about location, location, location!BWW Review: CABARET at Tipi am Kanzleramt - It's all about location, location, location!
by Mark Janicello - Jul 21, 2018

Watching CABARET in Berlin, near the original locations of Christopher Isherwood's Book 'I Am A Camera,' gives this Kander and Ebb classic even more dramatic weight than it could possibly have in a New York or London production.  At last night's Premiere of the revival of Director/Choreographer Vincent Paterson's production showed why Mr. Paterson has been called 'The Man Behind the Throne.'  Widely imitated, but never equaled, his work in Berlin is the best reason to watch this production.  (more...)
