Cabaret, by John Kander and Fred Ebb
Powerful Theatre
Sunday, June 3, 2007
4.0
I attended the June 3 performance of this production and while I am a fan of theatre (a club member of the Tavern and frequently attend other Atlanta theatres), I have to admit that I was unfamiliar with this show having never seen a production nor the movie. So, I went expecting all laughs and a good, cheery time based only on the few songs I knew. While I had a hearty laugh for an hour or so....I was actually taken aback from the change in mood of this tale of how everyday life was affected as Nazi Germany came to power. The show is absolutely a MUST SEE!

Heidi's direction and collaboration with unlimited talent in a limited size theatre company is phenomanal. Jeff McKerley is always fun for me to watch, but seeing him slide from light-hearted frivolity to tear-jerking seriousness so seamlessly was just amazing. I am still in awe.

I enjoyed the whole cast, but the chemistry between Ellen McQueen and Clark Taylor really captured my heart. The story needs to be told and is absolutely worth the emotional roller coaster the audience experiences. I prefer comedy to any tragedy, but you get a lot of both with this show. Thanks to Jeff Watkins for including this in the season. I hope I make it back at least once more during the show's run.
