Impactful, Absorbing, Great staging, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you love this musical. A relevant adaptation at a time we need one. I initially saw it w/Buckley & Redmayne; it’s even better w/Lennox & Fee

Don't see it if you don’t want Amy Lennox to tear your heart out of your chest with her searing performance.

Intense, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Amy Lennox is brilliant. The staging is great. pre show is super inventive

Don't see it if The overall show, while different then the Mendes revival (or original Prince production) still packs a big punch in staging and style.

Great direction, Resonant, Edgy

See it if you want to see an updated version of a classic. Amy Lennox is riveting and sings Cabaret like no other. She, alone, is worth it Fast paced.

Don't see it if you expect this production to push the boundaries from previous production. That said, a very strong revival

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.

Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Entertaining, Exquisite

See it if you’re wanting a special immersive unique experience.

Don't see it if you’re prudish or antisemitic or racist.

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.

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.

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.

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 Stage (UK)

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.

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.

The Times (UK)

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