CABARET in Concert revives a well-loved Broadway musical. In 1966, the original was nominated for 11 Tony Awards and won eight at the 1967 awards show. The 1998 Broadway revival of CABARET, starring Natasha Richardson and Alan Cumming, was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and took home four. This musical tells the story of the seedy nightlife at the Kit Kat Club in Berlin during the 1920s when the Third Reich is coming to power. The tale explores the relationships between a German boarding house proprietor, an English cabaret performer, an American writer, and a Jewish fruit seller.
Performed "in concert," this show will present a fresh take. Staged concerts by Lyric Stage feature an entire cast and orchestra with all the dialogue, staging, choreography, and lyrics you love. However, traditional scenery and sets are eliminated from the production. The concert production at the Majestic Theater will be choreographed and directed by Penny Ayn Maas. Vonda K. Bowling will serve as Music Director, conducting the 13-piece all-female orchestra. Bowling also serves as the orchestra's pianist.

Kraftwerk delivers a theater experience unlike any other. The four-piece group produces a distinct form of electronica that alternates between psychedelic trance and bright, peppy beats.

Rhythm and Rhapsody artistically combines poetry, storytelling, and dance in a beautiful production that explores the African American community's social challenges.

The time-honored tradition of African storytelling brings the creative complexities of oral history to life on the stage at Hamon Hall.
Hamon Hall, situated within the Winspear Opera House, is an intimate venue with just 200 seats. This creates the perfect setting for the immersive experience that Rhythm and Rhapsody provides. You can enter through Sammons Park or from inside the Winspear Opera House.
