Schulze and Schneider open at MLP Thurs, May 14, 7:30 pm: edgy Stage Center production of Cabaret runs til May 23
"It's an edgy but serious show - especially serious in what's outside of the Kit Kat Klub," says actress Aubrey Buckner of the Stage Center production of Cabaret, which opens Thurs, May 14, 7:30 pm, at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse.
"It's edgy in more than one way," she says, thinking of the mix of storylines and costuming reflective of decadent Berlin in the pre-WWII era.
In the lead roles are Daniel Salazar, Rachael Lee McGill and Jason Shidiskis. Also making the club hop are Earleen Bergeron, David Bieler, Seth Taylor and Janin Pou.
Director and choreographer: Jared Watson. Sets: Seth Taylor from Robert Brill. Lighting: Daniel Salazar.
The belters will be backed by Mary Green, piano, Joshua Johnson, trombone, Cory Craig & Tom Yates, reeds, Cary Armound on viola, Steve Hitt, percussion, and Ted Beagley on trumpet.
Stage Center tickets, 22, 20, 15.
