Here Life Is Beautiful!
Off The Wall Theatre opened
its 2014-15 season with Dale Gutzman's powerful, shocking and innovative
production of Kander and Ebb's musical masterpiece, CABARET.
this venture, the small Off The Wall space was turned into
a run-down German Cabaret of 1933. Here, people come to dream...to
hide from the harsh realities knocking at their doors. Here, they sing
and dance...and live and die. Cliff, the young American writer comes to
the city looking for a muse, and finds her in Sally Bowles, a shoddy nightclub
performer who hides behind a shimmering personality and green painted fingernails.
Cliff, who is hiding from his own homosexuality, dreams that Sally might
be the answer to his prayers. Fraulein Schneider dreams that she might
once again find love and security for her boarding house, and Herr Schultz
pretends that being a Jew is not a death warrant. And over all of these
last ditch hopes and dreams, the painted, primping, emcee spins a world
of magic for those who no longer believe in reality.
You know the songs! They are a part of
our musical theater heritage. Here, they were seen performed in a whole
new light and with new meaning.
Anne Van Deusen, Musical Director
beyond compare, led the Cabaret orchestra down the Merry Road to Hell.
Even our Band sang and danced! And as the CABARET world burned and
crumbled around us, we in the audience realized that the show is unfortunately
still all too relevant today!
the musical doesn't grow old, it just becomes more potent! You will never
forget Off The Wall Theatre's production of CABARET!
