Friday night was the opening for Greenbrier Valley Theatre’s hit musical Cabaret. My husband and I attended and it was fantastic. Dinner, catered by Stella’s, consisted of traditional German fare. The dinner was delicious and the entertainment couldn't be better. If you don't have your tickets, get them quick as you do not want to miss this show.
It was indeed a memorable experience with a very talented cast and musicians. GVT’s space was converted into the world of the play, as the theatre transformed into the seedy Kit Kat Klub, the main backdrop for the show. In addition to the cast, all theatre staff – from box office employees to ushers and servers – were in costume for the show.
For a sneak preview of Caberet, check out the video below:
American writer Cliff Bradshaw travels to pre-World War II Berlin in search of inspiration. He finds that and more in Sally Bowles, an entertainer at a cabaret called the Kit Kat Klub. Bradshaw and Bowles fall in love but their lives are thrown into disarray with the increasing strength of Hitler’s Nazi Party. Based on the play I AM A CAMERA by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, CABARET, which The Los Angeles Times refers to as an “eternally captivating musical,” has received 15 Tony Awards and eight Academy Awards.
