Direct from Broadway, the musical masterpiece comes to Madison! As part of their 50th Anniversary Season, the critically acclaimed and award-winning Roundabout Theatre Company is proud to present the national tour of Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) and Rob Marshall’s (Into the Woods and Chicago, the films) Tony Award®-winning production of Cabaret, playing Tuesday, March 21-Sunday, March 26, 2017, at Overture Center as part of the 2016/17 Broadway Series.
John Kander, Fred Ebb, (best known for their legendary musical Chicago) and Joe Masteroff’s Tony-winning musical features some of the most memorable songs in theater history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.” Cabaret is set in the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd––and to leave their troubles outside.
The creative team for the North American tour features the original Broadway direction by Sam Mendes and original co-direction & choreography by Rob Marshall. Tour direction is under the helm of BT McNicholl (Spamalot) and choreography is recreated by Cynthia Onrubia (Victor/Victoria). Cabaret is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.
