"Cabaret"


Cabaret
Joe Masteroff (Book); John Kander (Music); Fred Ebb (Lyrics)
Hillbarn Theatre

Keith Pinto & Jessica Maxey
Since its 1966 Broadway debut and its initial eight Tonys, the inspiring hit Cabaret has continued to evolve through several major, award-winning revivals in both New York and London, becoming ever darker, starker, and rawer with each new production during its fifty-year history.  Hillbarn Theatre’s current version of this Joe Masteroff (book), John Kander (music), and Fred Ebb (lyrics) icon of the American Musical Theatre is boiling hot from Minute One with sexually explicit grabbing, rubbing, pinching, slapping, and thrusting of every possible body part by a cast dressed scantily in cheap bras, panties, and garters or in leather straps, pants, and boots.
