Life is a cabaret, no it really, really is. So we might as well live it up while we can. Since I saw Cabaret at Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 10, I cannot stop humming the tunes while I’m writing, cleaning my house or pumping gas into my car.
Roundabout Theatre Company produced the show that featured “Queer As Folk” star Randy Harrison as the saucy emcee. Harrison delighted and ignited the stage as he narrated the tale of the raunchy Kit Kat Klub, a hotspot in Berlin. As the Nazi party rises to power, the world around the characters begins to crumble and life as any of them knew it, would never be the same.
The show, which debuted in 1966, just celebrated its 50th anniversary, and to the millennial generation, perhaps it will seem more relevant than ever. This production of Cabaret pushes boundaries with a little more bump ‘n’ grind and provides the perfect backdrop for a girl’s night out with friends or a different sort of date night. Andrea Goss shines as lead star-crossed starlet Sally Bowles. “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Money” and “Married” are among the many show-stopping songs in the show. See Cabaret at Broward Center through Jan. 22. Tickets start at $35.
