Cabaret – Review

27 Jul

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of seeing Cabaret the musical at the Everett Performing Arts Center. This musical’s music and lyrics are by the award-winning team of Chicago. Being a fan of Chicago, I knew I was in for a real treat.

When the curtain went up, we felt a major presence in the auditorium. A red flashy cabaret sign hung high above the stage for all to see. Dancers appeared with their sexy undergarments singing and dancing in sync. This was a musical I couldn’t take my eyes off. The music was memorable and catchy and the dancing was sexy and seductive.

The musical centers around two characters who fall in love during the 1930s in Berlin. This is a time when the Nazis were threatening to take over the government. Sally is a dancer at a club and she meets a handsome American novelist who is taken by surprise by her charming presence. She soon convinces him that she needs a place to stay temporarily, but before you know it, they fall in love. Sally becomes pregnant and her guy comes up with a plan to take her and flee to America. He is concerned with the Nazis’ threat to take over Berlin and the danger for him and his new family. Sally is resistant to this idea and struggles with leaving her career behind for love.

The acting and singing were very strong and the lead actress who played Sally had a very powerful voice. My favorite song was one where she was singing about her history for playing the field with her many men. It gave you some background into her character and her resistance about falling in love. It was a dramatic song that sucked you in.
