Cabaret – New cast: Maude Apatow & Mason Alexander Park in character as Sally Bowles and The Emcee

The current lead cast of the show, John McCrea as The Emcee and Aimee Lou Wood as Sally Bowles, will finish up on 27 May 2023.

Maude Apatow said in a press statement: “Playing Sally Bowles has always been a dream of mine, and I am so grateful to be joining such a spectacular production.”

Mason Alexander Park said: “I am so thrilled to be joining this remarkable production playing a role that has changed my life continuously over the years, in a show that is unfortunately more timely than ever. I remember being so moved by the show last year, and turning over my shoulder with tears in my eyes at the interval to see Maude Apatow perched behind me. Cut to a full calendar year from that performance, and we will be doing our first preview paired together as Emcee and Sally. To sing these songs and tell this story as a trans person in a time in which many of the themes of the show are slowly reentering the public consciousness, with politicians targeting my community and the communities at the center of this piece is a harrowing, exciting, and necessary challenge that I am so looking forward to taking on. Come to the Cabaret!”

Cabaret opened in December 2021 to critical and audience acclaim, and won a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards, the most for any musical revival in Olivier history.
