Three Rivers Music Theatre Presents CABARET
"In here, life is beautiful..." Kander & Ebb's CABARET takes audiences deep into the seedy nightlife of the Kit Kat Klub on the eve of Hitler's rise to power. Based on Christopher Isherwoods Berlin Stories, CABARET follows the interlocking stories of a cabaret singer, a writer from America, and the denizens of Berlin as they are caught up in the swirling maelstrom of a changing society. Led by an enigmatic and dazzling Emcee, CABARET is an intoxicating theatrical experience, featuring well-known classics of the musical stage such as Dont Tell Mama, Maybe This Time, and of course Cabaret. Billy Dawson, Jessica Butler, and Jake Wilhelm star as the Emcee, Sally Bowles, and Cliff. Three Rivers Music Theatre promises an evening of theatre you won't soon forget. The historic Philmore on Broadway hosts the production, marking the first full musical production in that space in over fifty years.

The Philmore on Broadway
The Philmore on Broadway began life over 90 years ago as the Broadway Theater on Fort Wayne's bustling Broadway Avenue. The theater opened in 1923 - right in the heart of the Roaring Twenties. The Jazz music phenomenon was sweeping the globe, the "flapper" style was liberating and redefining women for the Modern Age, and Art Deco architecture perfectly captured the flare and energy of the Era. All the charm and style of the Jazz Age is still alive and well at this beautifully historic building.
