Cabaret

My brother was deployed over the holidays, so on Christmas morning I woke up to the following snaps:

Have you figured out what my gift was? That’s right, tickets to Cabaret on Broadway!

The show is set at the Kit Kat Klub in 1930s Berlin (clue #1). Emma Stone was starring as Sally Bowles (clue #3).

Clue #2 was my favorite of all, referencing Shia LaBeouf’s arrest at a Cabaret performance. You can watch his hilarious interview about it here. “What are you in for?” “Cabaret.”

It was such a great gift idea! I invited Kendall to come with, and we headed to the former Studio 54 for the performance.

You know the show is going to be interesting when everyone that works there is shirtless!

The venue is amazing, and makes you feel like you’re at a small nightclub instead of in a theater.

Before the show, one by one the performers began coming onstage, stretching and warming up for the performance. It made the audience feel like we were at the Kit Kat Klub, watching them backstage before the curtain opened.

There were two other things that I thought made the show really unique. One was that the performers actually smoked cigarettes! The other was that the playbills weren’t passed out until after the show was over. I have never seen that done before, and I ended up liking it. This way people weren’t constantly checking to see what song was next or when intermission was. Instead, they were able to just get lost in the show.

Cabaret was amazing. Not only were the performers phenomenal, but this version of the show made a profound social statement underneath the superficialness of the songs. You could tell that it made an impact on the audience, especially when the show ended in silence. The lack of sound was more powerful than any chorus number could have been.

I highly recommend that you see Cabaret. It’s running through March 29th, so be sure to get your tickets now, here.

Life is beautiful!

  1. I know I am like n months late for this, but I always wanted to see Cabaret. I really want Alan Cumming to do it AGAIN, but it seems that he won’t do the role again any time soon. In this year’s Tony Awards, he jokingly said it is his last time he will sing the iconic “Willkommen” alongisde co-host Kristin Chenoweth.
