When the email for this giveaway landed in my inbox, I was excited. I love this show!
After a sell out season in Sydney, Cabaret is coming to Melbourne next month and we've got tickets to give away, read on to find out how you can win them!
I first saw it many years ago and without mentioning any names, some of the casting was questionable. Not this time around! This time we've got a cast that includes Chelsea Gibb, Paul Capsis, Marcus Graham, and John O'May!
Winner of 12 Tony Awards, 8 Academy Awards and 7 BAFTA Awards, Cabaret wows audiences and critics alike time and time again sky-rocketing the careers its starts. Fifty years ago in 1966 the original Broadway production made a household name of Joel Grey who shook audiences as The Emcee. Two years later an unassuming Judi Dench stole the show as Sally Bowles on London’s West End. Arguably the most iconic movie musical of all time made a star of Liza Minnelli when she brought Sally Bowles to the silver screen directed by Bob Fosse.
Cabaret The Musical is based on The Berlin Stories by famous author Christopher Isherwood who exchanged his upper-middle-class conservative upbringing for the sexual freedom and social liberation of Berlin during the bustling 1930s. Cabaret the musical, adapted by song and lyrics team Kander and Ebb, became a semibiographical portrait of Isherwood’s life, celebrating life on the edge.
Beneath the fun and games of Cabaret lies an ominous melody, providing a glimpse of vibrant Berlin’s dark undercurrents during the rise of Hitler. Cabaret walks the tightrope of pure entertainment and serious political consciousness and for this very reason the musical continues to allure audiences.
