Must see, Great staging, Great acting, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if An amazing show. The conversion of the venue into a cabaret is formidable and Eddie’s acting was just superb! Definitely a must watch.

Don't see it if Suitable for musical lovers and people who can endure long shows, as the first part in particular is quite long.

The London Evening Standard

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 element of Frecknall’s production is a wow: the sumptuous pre-show entertainment...this production is, and will remain, an absolute knockout. With its combination of all-encompassing decadent beauty and thunderous moral force, there’s simply nothing else in town quite like it.”

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.
