Cabaret

Based on the play I Am a Camera by John Van Druten


Based on stories by Christopher Isherwood

The infamous Kit Kat Klub has undergone a new makeover. Grab a VIP seat and become a part of the action. … A female master of ceremonies hosts a decadent and sensual interpretation of CABARET.



Based on the original concept and script, this staged version brings forth the turmoil of love, trust, denial and desire embodied in Sally Bowles as well as the young and restless curiosity of a defiant American named Cliff.







From the producer that brought you the smash hit, Elevator, and the director of Into the Woods and Pippin.



Set against the backdrop of pre-World War II, the show takes place inside a provocative, yet forbidden Kit Kat Klub, where the relationship between cabaret performer Sally Bowles and the handsome American Cliff Bradshaw flourishes only to be confronted by social taboos and the imminent rise of the Nazi Party.



Overseeing all of the action in CABARET is the Master of Ceremonies (MC) of the Kit Kat Klub, who serves as a cultural metaphor and the upbeat catalyst to the ever-changing climate of the show.



Reflecting the moods and guiding the minds of the characters on stage, the MC takes pleasure in reminding the audience how easily society falls prey to the electrifying chaos that surrounds them. It is best to leave all inhibitions outside.

HUNDRED DAYS and the intimate Black Box at the Umbrella Stage Company in Concord are a perfect match, not unlike Abigail and Shaun Bengson, the couple whose true story of their romantic and musical journey is told in this original song cycle. Staged like a concert before a few cabaret-style tables and rows of stadium seating, with the band seated behind the vocalists and totally engaged, HUNDRED DAYS has elements of ONCE with everyone having a grand old time making music as the vehicle for their storytelling.

Brooklyn singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy is returning with her highly anticipated new album Devotion, due out March 27 on ATO Records. Devotion is Glaspy's first full-length since her acclaimed debut 2016 Emotions and Math and marks an entirely new sonic chapter for her. Glaspy has built a reputation as a skilled guitarist, and Emotions and Math was notable for its swaggering electric guitar sounds; on Devotion she shifted gears and built songs with completely different instrumentation as their base. The results - co-produced with Los Angeles' Tyler Chester - are rich, sweeping, and melodic, a fittingly enchanting sound for a collection of 12 love songs. 'It's about letting love in even when you don't know what will happen when you do,' says Glaspy. 'It's about devoting your heart to someone or something, against all odds.'

Ahead of their European and North American tour kick-off, Efterklang have shared concert footage from their performance at this fall's Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht. The clip, which premiered via Line Of Best Fit, features 3 tracks off their most recent album Altid Sammen (4AD) -- 'Supertanker,' 'Verden Forsvinder' and 'Vi Er Uendelig.' The band's Casper Clausen notes,'We loved this festival so much. The curation is beyond exciting with so many national and regional legends, stars. Many of them had never performed in Europe before, all mixed up with bands like us, Bjørk DJ'ing behind a plant wall and the entire city of Utrecht turned into a festival site. This clip features our wonderful live-band performing songs from our new album Altid Sammen, and although they are in Danish I sincerely hope they translate in wonderful ways, In short they are about coming together and falling apart like cells forming when a baby is created.'

I've relished the blank stares I've received when discussing this project. The only way to get people onside has been to perform it at any opportunity - in try-outs at art galleries, pubs, clubs, an orangery, theatres. Anywhere just to get it on its hind legs and show people that the poet Christopher Reid's writing can connect instantly with an audience; his wit, clarity, sumptuous phrasing, high emotion and, I believe, superhuman ability to express feelings which most of us cannot articulate. I'd read his publications A Scattering and The Song Of Lunch in 2010, and immediately thought they could be performed live.
