Based on Roundabout Theatre Company’s Tony Award®-winning production, Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) and Rob Marshall’s (Into the Woods and Chicago, the films) Cabaret comes to the The Mendel Center at Lake Michigan College on Tuesday, May 1, at 7 pm.
This all-new production launched December 2017 in Worcester, Massachusetts, with tour direction by BT McNicholl (Spamalot), tour choreography by Jennifer Werner, and original costume design by William Ivey Long (Chicago, Cinderella). A company of twenty-one quadruple threat performers (actors, singers, dancers, and musicians) features Erik Schneider as the Emcee and Bailey McCall Thomas as Sally Bowles.
The audience will be welcomed to 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. But as life in pre-WWII Germany grows more and more uncertain, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times?
The production features some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen,” and “Maybe This Time.” Leave your troubles outside – life is beautiful at Cabaret - John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff’s Tony Award-winning musical about following your heart while the world loses its way.

This production is intended for mature audiences.
