Cabaret at Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre Storrs July 4-21
July 4 - July 21
The Connecticut Repertory Theatre presents Cabaret at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre Storrs, Connecticut July 4th – July 21st, 2019. Based on the play by Jahn Van Druten with stories by Christopher Isherwood, Cabaret is set in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close. A garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET.
A young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, tentatively begins a torrid romance with the English lounge singer, Sally Bowles. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. As powerful today, as when it opened on Broadway and garnered 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Join CRT in the legendary Kit Kat Klub, for this smart, sexy musical featuring the enduring songs “Cabaret”, “Maybe This Time” and “Don’t Tell Mamma.”
Willkommen to Cabaret!
Laura Michelle Kelly (pictured above) will make her CRT debut starring in the iconic role of Sally Bowles.
