Cabaret at Lakewood Theatre Company, Sept 8 - Oct 15, 2017About the Play: Take your seat at the "perfectly marvelous" Kit Kat Klub in Kander and Ebb's Tony winning musical about cabaret performer Sally Bowles (Kelly Sina), American writer Cliff Bradshaw (Jon Gennari), and the decadence of 1930s Berlin. With mounting fear and uncertainty outside, your Emcee (Chuck Ketter) welcomes you into a world where your troubles are left at the door... or are they?  As Sally and Cliff pursue a life of pleasure in Weimar Berlin, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter. The two are faced with a choice: abandon themselves to pleasures promised by the cabaret, or open their eyes and face the coming storm.

The story: In 1929 the young American writer Clifford Bradshaw (Jon Gennari) arrives in Berlin, searching for material for his novel. He rents a cheap room in Fräulein Schneider’s (Maggie Chapin) boarding house and spends New Year’s Eve in the Kit Kat Klub, upon Ernst Ludwig’s (Chad Dickerson) invitation, an acquaintance he made during his journey. At the club a louche Emcee (Chuck Ketter) introduces the attraction of the evening: Fräulein Sally Bowles (Kelly Sina), an English nightclub singer. Sally and Cliff quickly get to know one another. She is looking for a place to stay, he is looking for an aim in life and already on the following day she moves in with him – disregarding his views on the matter.

Herr Schultz (Ron Daum), a friendly fruit merchant, also lives in Fräulein Schneider’s boarding house and spoils his landlady with exotic fruit. As a Jewish man, he is for the first time confronted with the hatred of the emerging Nazi movement. When their tender love story leads to an engagement, a difficult decision regarding their forthcoming wedding must be made.

Cliff is appalled at the burgeoning Fascism and wants to leave Berlin as soon as possible, but, just like the shrill, cynical Emcee, Sally is uninterested in politics – for her, life is only a Cabaret. As the Nazis come to power, no one knows where the journey will lead them.

The show contains the following memorable musical numbers: “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Two Ladies,” “Tomorrow Belongs To Me,” “If You Could See Her,” and the title song, “Cabaret.”

Members of the ensemble include Joy Flatz, Ellie Forrest, Em Lewis, Audrey Sackett, Sydney Webber, Adam Elliott Davis, Avery Heater, Colin Stephen Kane, Ethan LaFrance, Mike Borgstrom, and Sam Schultz.

The creative team includes director Ron Daum, musical director Beth Noelle, choreographer Laura Hiszczynskyj, scenic designer Chuck Ketter, costume designer Grace O’Malley, lighting designer Jonathan Hart, sound designer Marcus Storey, prop design by Addie Underwood, stage manager Michael DeMaio, assistant stage manager Zach Peak, and the producer is Steve Knox.
