Cabaret, by Kander and Ebb
Great Cast - Solid Production
Monday, July 21, 2008
4.0
I went to see this show on Saturday and thought it was amazing! Other than a few sound glitches, I was thoroughly entertained. First, who the heck is this Brian Clowdus and what is he doing in Dunwoody??? He had the entire audience in the palm of his hand, which, is really the key to that role. Everyone was laughing and applauding - the audience was one of the better Atlanta audiences i've seen a show with, actually. I could definitely tell he'd done the show before and got the sense that this was second nature to him. His improvisation style really engaged the audience. I couldn't tell what was practiced and what was just on the fly which seems like the best compliment for anyone playing that role. He much deserved the accolades from the crowd at curtain.

On to the rest of the cast - also very, very good! Cliff & Schneider were other stand outs for me - their voices were extremely solid. And the Kit Kat girls were the perfect mix of sexy and tragic. Their choreography was excellent, though, I have to say, the Emcee out kicked 'em :)

Too bad this show isn't going for a few more weekends. I would definitely invite friends to go!
