Great score and choreography, Must see, Great staging, Great writing, Edgy

See it if To sees a stunning production and staging of the classic musical, if you are familiar with the musical & love the score.

"Hot diggity dachshund, it’s old home week on the campus at Weimar Berlin, otherwise known as the Kit Kat Klub. And if we take off our glasses and squint, we can pretend that life is just as divinely, dangerously decadent as it was when we were all 16 years younger."

"This Cabaret is a superb production of one of the great Broadway musicals of all time—an exhilarating, harrowing masterpiece."

"Is it too much to ask that the current revival of the revisal of the reimagining of the great work still be as good? After all, the Roundabout production opening tonight at Studio 54 is much the same show as the one that closed there ten years ago."

"Great musical dramas like “Cabaret” — entertaining, tuneful and illuminating — are all too rare."

"It seemed nuts but proved shrewd of Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall to retool their dazzling 1998 revival of the Kander and Ebb masterpiece, fit Cumming with a new trenchcoat for his triumphant return, and bring the decadent netherworld of 1920s Berlin back to Studio 54, the revival’s ideal venue."

"Mendes and Marshall have precision-tooled the production so that its hard, diamond edges glisten with sweat and sparkle. Their staging is tight as a drum, underlining the musical's ingenious construction while briskly maneuvering through abrupt modulations of tone."

"Mendes' "Cabaret" was, and is, a brilliantly inventive and revealing conception. Then and now."

"What do you call a revival of a revival? A re-revival? In the case of this “Cabaret,” you just call it fantastic."
