Life is beautiful at "Cabaret"! This acclaimed Broadway production celebrates its 50th anniversary and returns to stage on a national tour after more than 10 years. The Providence Performing Arts Center will launch the tour beginning January 26-31.
Direct from Broadway, The Roundabout Theatre Company presents Cabaret, a production based on “The Berlin Stories” by Christopher Isherwood. The show follows two love stories, life at a seedy night club known as “The Kit Kat Club,” and the political uprising in Berlin circa 1931 as the Nazis rise to power. Some memorable songs from the production include “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.”
"Cabaret" is one of the few productions where the audience will see the performers take on the role of the orchestra. In chatting with some of the cast from the most recent revival, we learned that they spend 12 hours a day in rehearsal, as they have the added discipline of music along with the singing, dancing and acting. At a recent press event, actor Randy Harrison, who narrates the show as the “Emcee” spoke about the unique way the audience will interact with the show. "Cabaret" opened on Broadway in 2014 with the most recent revival at Studio 54, where the audience was seated at tables as if to be part of the show. Many surprises and an edgier revival are sure to create for an unforgettable evening at "Cabaret."
Make sure to get your tickets to be the first in the country to see the newest revival of "Cabaret" at the Providence Performing Arts Center January 26-31. Visit www.ppac.org for ticket information. As a note, the show is recommended for ages 16+. Don’t miss this memorable and Tony Award-winning production of "Cabaret" by the Roundabout Theatre Company.
