Cabaret, by Kander and Ebb
Dejie is the jewel in the crown
Wednesday, March 9, 2005
5.0
I saw Cabaret at the Neighborhood Playhouse last weekend and I thought it was an excellent production. I haven't seen the Canton production yet, but I intend to before it closes. The Neighborhood Playhouse cast had obvious standouts. David Rossetti's emcee was awesome, the Kit Kat girls were incredible and Brandon O'Dell as Cliff offered a nice interpretation and a great singing voice. I didn't think Laine Binder had much depth as Sally Bowles and though she can obviously belt out a song, I didn't feel much empathy for her even after her abortion experience.

I did enjoy the subplot with Michael Shikany as Herr Shultz and Dejie Johnson as Fraulein Schneider. Dejie is capitivating every moment she is on the stage and has a voice layered with sensitivity and determination depending on the scene. I liked the poignancy of the scenes with Shultz and Schneider, especially Johnson's haunting solo, "What Would You Do?" I hope the Playhouse management has the good sense to find another vehicle worthy of Johnson's enormous acting and singing talents.
