Gallery Players presents a staging of Kander and Ebb's musical classic, which centers around a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close. More…
From the show:
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Gallery will be producing the 1998 revival script, made famous by Alan Cummings as Emcee.
See it if A great cabaret production. Well done and fantastic performance. Very enjoyable and fast paced.
Don't see it if A lot of skin. Pre Nazi era. if you do not like cabaret or riske production.
See it if Great Emcee. Modernized gender fluid kit-kat girls & boys w sexy outfits & dancing. Strong music & vocals. Interesting immersive staging.
Don't see it if Stereotyped naive macho good-guy American. Dated gender roles w/the American & Sally. Well known melodramatic Nazi Germany story.
See it if While adhering closely to Mendes' original, Gallery's immersive staging works well w/ lavish production values Lustig in fine voice as Sally
Don't see it if Book scenes somewhat choppy & energy/pacing a little off (due to a 2 show day) but Levario's hot MC & Kit Kat Girls provide extra pizzazz
See it if Also great set, Great idea for the Cabaret tables. Caught a fantastic talk-back by most of the cast of 19 led by Barrie Gelles MORE
Don't see it if Too many steps to the loo. How will Gallery match this production?
See it if you'd enjoy a mostly young cast put tons of energy into a fine production of this musical, with great band, light and choreography support.
Don't see it if you do not want to be immersed into the early Nazi days of Berlin and the fear that destroyed relationships or are uncomfortable with nudity
See it if You want a semi-immersive, edgy & fascinating take on the traditional Cabaret. You want a great cast performing a great story & score.
Don't see it if You're bothered by raunchy content. You want a more contemporary musical. You prefer traditional staging. You want bigger production values.
See it if you're a fan of the show. This is a terrific, local production with some wonderful performances, especially Sally and the Emcee.
Don't see it if you're a prude. This is based on Sam Mendes's direction, with lots and lots of skin.
See it if You'd enjoy a high energy and very well acted dance musical set in 1930s Germany. Superb cast. Dance to band at intermission. Show flies by.
Don't see it if Folding chairs can be uncomfortable. But overall as good or better than most off Broadway shows in Manhattan.
See it if you want an entertaining, enjoyable albeit imperfect performance of a classic show. Well done given the venue's limitations.
Don't see it if you don't like Cabaret unless Alan Cummings is the MC and Liza is Sally.
See it if you have never seen Cabaret, take this opportunity to see this adequate production.
Don't see it if you love Cabaret because of the wonderful things that a talented, creative director can do with it. None of that creativity is here.
See it if You enjoy classical musicals revisited. Cast is talented, in particular the Emcee! Excellent production value in this intimate theatre.
Don't see it if You don’t like the cabaret/burlesque scene (similar to Moulin Rouge) or Nazi themes. Large cast overwhelmed the space when all were onstage.
See it if It's Kander and Ebb at their greatest (yes, better then Chicago). Somewhere between Broadway and Vaudeville. Also, the Players are great.
Don't see it if You're sick of K&E and you're not really interested in another show set in 1930s Germany.
See it if Stong lead cast serves Kander & Ebb score and lyrics with pizzaz
Don't see it if Disappointingly derivative of the recent Roundabout revival and does not have the budget or production values to measure up
See it if You enjoy watching classic musicals performed in a small, intimate theater by a talented cast with clever staging.
Don't see it if You want huge production values (though they do a great job with a small budget) and spectacle, or are easily offended by sexual innuendo.
See it if a surprisingly splendid production with a mesmerizing emcee.Powerful and absorbing made more relevant by today's atmosphere of hate and fear
Don't see it if you do not wish to be upset and confronted with ugliness and baseness. This is gritty and troubling drama well done so that it grabs you
See it if another excellent production by the gallery players, see it if you can handle stairs, no other reason not to
Don't see it if see it, it's excellent, if you cannot do stairs is the only reason you shouldn't see it, it's not very mobile accessible
See it if Another interpretation of classical musical/book;good orchestra; wonderful Brian Edward Levario as Emcee,who can act and sing, talented cast
Don't see it if Want more emotions on stage(at times looked boring and slow), dislike small theatre, expect actress who plays Sally not just sing but to act
See it if Easily one of the best musicals I have ever seen!! Raunchy, and yet moving, absorbing, masterful staging, singing & acting: MUST-SEE!!
Don't see it if No reason not to see it: It's fabulous!!
See it if it is one of your favorite musicals and you want to see the darker side of what the Nazi era did to people.
Don't see it if you are not prepared for a totally relevant depiction of that time and sadly ours.
See it if A remarkable adaptat of musical classic w/an inclusiv cast on small grt stage,abt early XXcent decadent Berlin. Terrific act sing&coreogr.
Don't see it if Unless seated as faraway as possible due to the loud singing.You do not want to think of what started the Nazi regime: povert inequal prejud
See it if If you've never seen Cabaret you might want to see this . Audience seemed to enjoy it.
Don't see it if If you've seen wonderful productions of Cabaret you will probably be disappointed. Cast uneven.
See it if you are interested in seeing a well written play, with good music and lyrics, that is performed well and is very relevant to today's issues.
Don't see it if you object to mild raunchiness.
