Eastern Michigan University Theater presents the Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret
Eastern Michigan University Theatre is pleased to present the Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret, with performances on October 18-20 and 24-27, 2019. All performances will take place in the Quirk Theatre, located in the Quirk Dramatic Arts Building at the intersection of East Circle Drive and Best Hall/Ann Street on EMU’s Ypsilanti Campus. This production is recommended for audiences ages 16+.
The year is 1929. The place, Berlin’s bawdy nightspot the Kit Kat Klub. Outside the club, Germany succumbs to the power of the emerging Third Reich; inside, the Emcee intoxicates audiences with promises that troubles will be forgotten at the Cabaret. Caught up in this world-at-odds is a host of memorable characters: the naïve writer, Cliff; the seductive singer, Sally Bowles; the boarding house head mistress, Fraulein Schneider; and the Jewish fruit seller, Herr Schultz. With a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, this 1998 Revival version of the Tony Award- winning musical provides a scorching satiric indictment of frivolous complacency in the face of impending doom.
Ticket prices for Cabaret are $18 regular admission, $14 for Seniors (60+), and $12 for students & MAINSTAGE patrons. Tickets are available in person at the Convocation Center, Student Center ticket office or the Quirk Box Office, by phone at 734.487.2282, and online at www.emutix.com.
