THOMASTON — “Cabaret,” the award winning musical revival comes to the Thomaston Opera House opening Saturday, Jan. 27.
“Cabaret” is under the direction of Dan Checovetes, known mostly for his direction with LCT’s popular teen theater productions.
With music direction by Sean Lewis and choreography by Emily Diedrich, this fierce provocative musical explores the underground culture of Germany before the second World War.
Cliff Bradshaw, played by Frank Beaudry, last seen as ‘Vince Fontaine’ in LCT’s summer production of Grease, is an American novelist who travels to Berlin for inspiration. He finds that and more when he meets the seductive Cabaret singer, Sally Bowles, played by LCT newcomer, Jackie DeMaio.
The romance blossoms and Cliff even has dreams of a family, but the terrors and harsh realities of the outside world destroy any future they might have had.
Joe Guttadauro, last seen as Patsy in “Spamalot,” plays the role of Emcee, the maniacal gender-bending narrator, made famous in the film “Cabaret” by Joel Grey that also starred Liza Minelli as Sally.
Featuring all the Broadway hits, “Wilkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Maybe This Time,” and the title song “Cabaret,” this sexy Tony award winning musical revival will transport you back to the nightclubs of the 1930s. Not suitable for young children.
Performances of “Cabaret” are Saturday, Jan. 27, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 2-3 and Feb. 9-10 at 8 p.m. and Sundays, Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 at 2 p.m.
