Cabaret, by Kander and Ebb
An Enjoyable Evening
Tuesday, February 22, 2005
4.0
I went to see the Neighborhood Playhouse's of Cabaret last weekend and wanted to add my voice to the others on this site.

I found the cast to be incredibly talented, especially the wonderful Kit Kat girls and the fabulous David Rossetti. He is in total command of the stage whenever he is present and I look forward to seeing him in future productions in town. Laine Binder has a powerful voice but I didn't find that her portrayal of Sally Bowles had much depth. Brandon O'Dell is perferct as the idealistic writer Cliff Bradshaw and his solo during the first act is a delightful moment.

There are many memorable moments in this production. Dejie Johnson as Fraulein Schneider is ably matched by Michael Shikany as Herr Schultz. Johnson's performance is measured and poignant and left me wanting more.

Though the choreography is spectacular and the costumes appropriately daring, I found the staging a bit stodgy and I was not impressed with the set that seemed as though it couldn't decide whether it wanted to be totally stark or not. I would have opted for totally stark and lost the maps (at least I think they were maps).

I'm glad there are a lot of great plays happening in Atlanta. I hope Neighborhood Playhouse can maintain the high standard they have obviously set with Cabaret.
