Tomo Suru Presents an Immersive Production of CABARET this Week
Club XY in the heart of Davie Street in Vancouver will turn into the Kit Kat Klub in Tomo Suru's immersive production of Cabaret, celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Tomo Suru has already established themselves as a company which has diverse casting, pushes boundaries and presents productions in new, and different ways, such as their unplugged, bare bones musical production of Spring Awakening earlier this year. Cabaret will be no different.
In a Berlin nightclub the year is 1931 and a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Kit Kat Klub. With the Emcee's (Gil Yaron) bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and Tomoltuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff (Max Smith), a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles (Sarah Seekamp). Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider (Jacqollyn Keath), proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boardinghouse, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz (Charlie Deagon), a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies."
Rounding out the cast is Stefanie Stanley as Fräulein Kost, John Ennis Graham as Ernst Ludwig, Maddison Simms as Rosie, Sarah Moir as Frenchie, Terran Milne as Lulu, Krista Aggerholm as Helga, Max Hall as Bobby and Vince Kanasoot as Victor.
This production is directed by Gerald Williams, music directed by Jeremy Hoffman and Choreographed by Lyndsay Britten.
