Perez Reviews: Cabaret

We had never seen Cabaret before - until recently! And, boy, are we glad that the first production of the iconic Kander & Ebb musical we saw is the much-heralded one by the Roundabout Theater Company, now playing on Broadway with Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming in the starring roles

This is a revival of a revival, which is very unusual and not done - but it sure is merited!

Directed and conceived by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, their Cabaret is brilliant! You are transported and immersed in the Kit Kat Club, which happens to be the old Studio 54 space.

This production is dark, sexy and oh so bittersweet!

You're all probably wondering if Michelle Williams can sing. We know she can act, and the answer is a resounding YES! She sounds awesome and we are surprised she hadn't sooner gotten her Anne Hathaway on!

Alan Cumming is sinister and sensual. He's completely captivating!

And the entire ensemble is great - and HOT!

It must have taken such a long time to cast this production because every member of the house band - prominently featured and utilized in the show - is ridiculously good looking!

BUT….

None of the bells and whistles that this production has would matter much were it not for the timeless score! Those songs!

And the book still feels fresh!

Cabaret is only playing a limited run, so hurry and get your tickets NOW!

P.S. Major props and congratulations also to Deborah Hecht, the show's dialect coach. Those German accents were all flawless!!!! Kudos!

    Perez, as I have written before on another review of yours, enough with the WE (Example: We had never seen Cabaret before). You sound like a lunatic when you refer to yourself as WE.

    I saw this during previews earlier this month. While I agree Michelle has a great voice, she does not do the role of Sally any justice. Soul-less performance. Michelle's real life insecurities/ shyness shows. Also, I agree with adblockplus.

    Worst reviewer I have ever read. No mention of story and plot. Where it's history is in musical theatre. Alan revising his Tony winning role. How Liza originated the role of Sally Bowels and won her Oscar for. Slight mention of Kander & Ebb who put this masterpiece together that still plays today.The gay/bi undertones.Why put Anne (Ham) Hathaway in the review AT ALL? She's just plain mediocre.
    P.S. a German accent is not that difficult to master.
    Find some depth and life in your writing.

    Re: MJL – . I just don't get the hate for Anne Hathaway. The lady is incredibly talented . Her haters will never recognize her many talents . I guess they are blinded by hate .
