Must see, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You love a beautiful show directed masterfully.

Don't see it if the Sam Mendes version from the Donmar or Broadway changed your life.... this is different, but still not as good as that.

Dizzying, Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You’re open to a more modern interpretation, and creative staging. It’s quite immersive.

Don't see it if If you’re a die hard fan of Joel’s Emcee, give this a miss- he’s somewhere between him and the raunchiness of Cummings.

Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if Incredible show. Truly a great piece of theatre. Immersive experience, not just a standard show. Get there early for the full experience.

Don't see it if Very very expensive. Only pay £250 if you get dinner and champagne at table. £250 for normal seat is far too expensive.Worth paying £120 for

Resonant, Quirky, Entertaining, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy immersive shows with imaginative design, staging and choreography. The ensemble were incredible!

Don't see it if You're dead-set on seeing the star cast. Unfortunately, Jesse Buckley was off for my performance, and her understudy wasn't a stand-out.

Time Out London
December 13th, 2021

But fundamentally, it’s a great production of ‘Cabaret’ that’s good enough to triumph over the myriad distractions it throws in its own path.

The Telegraph (UK)
December 13th, 2021

This is it. This is the one. At the end of the year, Rebecca Frecknall’s production of Cabaret – starring Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley – stands revealed as 2021’s kill-for-a-ticket theatrical triumph.

The London Evening Standard
December 13th, 2021

Eddie Redmayne’s Emcee is a brilliantly twisted creation. [Jessie Buckley] epitomises interwar Berlin: broken and broke, dancing tipsily on the edge. Frecknall proves herself one of our most exciting directors, and she draws superb performances from all involved.

What's On Stage (UK)
December 12th, 2021

With its starry cast and a director who has made her name rethinking classic plays, this Cabaret always promised to be the show of the season. It is that. It's also a show for our times.

The Guardian (UK)
December 13th, 2021

Rebecca Frecknall’s production on the whole lives up to its hype. [Jessie Buckley] sings with astonishing command, and there is an especially breath-taking version of “Cabaret”. If this show is sold on [Eddie Redmayne's] star turn, we get more than our money’s worth with his blinding performance – in this blinder of a show.

The Stage (UK)
December 13th, 2021

Every decision [Frecknall] makes here has clear, clever purpose. This Cabaret isn’t a radical reinterpretation, but its differences from previous productions plant themselves subtly at first, then ripple outward until they overwhelm.

The Times (UK)
December 19th, 2021

Cabaret looks terrific, sounds pretty good and retains its powerful “live and let live” message. But Eddie Redmayne is not that great in it.

London Theatre
December 13th, 2021

The Kit Kat Club is the ultimate escape. After a difficult or even ordinary day, the fanfare, glitz, and glamour feel like a portal to another time, where you’ll be greeted with complimentary schnapps, dancing chorus members, and a lascivious pre-show smorgasbord.
