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