The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Kander and Ebb’s classic Tony Award winning musical drama, Cabaret, is at Proctors this week. This touring production was directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall.
To set the stage:
1930s, Berlin: The Kit Kat Klub is a seedy cabaret, a place of decadent celebration. The Klub's Master of Ceremonies, or M.C., is joined by the cabaret girls and headliner-of-sorts, Sally Bowles.
In a train station, Cliff Bradshaw arrives, a young American writer coming to Berlin to work on his new novel.
At Proctors this week, Jon Peterson plays the Emcee and Benjamin Eakeley plays Cliff.
