Perfectly Marvelous! Cabaret Revival to Launch National Tour in 2016
And now presenting the Cabaret Girls and the Kit Kat Boys…across the country! The Roundabout Theatre Company’s Tony-winning production of Cabaret will kick off a national tour in Providence, RI on January 26, 2016. The tour plans to visit over 20 cities in North America. Casting and official dates will be announced shortly.
Featuring a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, Cabaret is set in the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd—and to leave their troubles outside. The musical features some of the most memorable songs in theater history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.”
Roundabout's acclaimed production of Cabaret opened on April 24, 2014 with Alan Cumming reprising his Tony-winning role as the Emcee. The show continues on Broadway starring Cumming and Emma Stone at Studio 54. The creative team includes direction by Sam Mendes, co-direction and choreography by Rob Marshall, set and club design by Robert Brill, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari and sound design by Brian Ronan.
Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Roundabout’s production of Cabaret opened on Broadway on March 19, 1998, and won four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. The tuner is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.
