In the 1972 film version of the musical first performed on Broadway in 1966, Liza Minelli belted out, "What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Come to the cabaret old chum...life is a Cabaret!" Her role as Sally Bowles in Cabaret made Minelli a superstar.
Definitely don't stay home on the evening of Friday May 11, come and join me for a particularly fun and uplifting production of the iconic "Cabaret" in the intimate KC theatre, Singapore's own little version of the Kit Kat Klub.
Set in pre-WWII Berlin, this love triangle — which revolves around the star of the show, American cabaret singer Sally Bowles — plays out against the rise of the Nazi party and the collapse of the Weimar Republic.
The musical is a production of the Stage Club. Founded in 1945, it's Singapore's oldest theatre company and one that prides itself on its ability to deliver the best of English language theatre — which it regularly does.
Preceded by a glass — or two! — of wine and an introduction to this wonderful theatre company, we will also meet the play's director and cast after the show.
And what a show it will be ol' chum, so come to the Cabaret.
