Alan Cumming and Michelle Williams star in Sam Mendes’ revival of Kander & Ebb’s classic musical Cabaret.
Kander & Ebb’s classic musical, immortalised on film by Liza Minelli, returns to Broadway in this major new revival by the award-winning Roundabout Theatre Company and directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
Transforming New York’s iconic Studio 54 into a cabaret space, the audience will be immersed in the action and part of the nightly goings-on in Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub.
Cabaret stars Alan Cumming (The Good Wife), who recreates his Tony Award winning performance as the Emcee, alongside Oscar nominee Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn), who makes her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles. The show also stars Tony nominees Danny Burstein (Follies) and Linda Emond (Death of a Salesman).
Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall recreate their critically-acclaimed staging of a show that features a much-loved score that includes hits such as “Maybe This Time,” and “Cabaret”.
Aspiring American writer Cliff Bradshaw meets and falls in love with the glamorous but impulsive headliner Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Cliff’s landlady Fraulein Schneider enjoys a late-in-life romance with Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. But his background spells trouble as the Nazi movement gains power and the decadent nightlife world becomes a dangerous place.
