Genre:
Theater
Theme:

Cabaret, starring Alan Cumming, I saw in this about a decade ago, and he was good, but he is amazing in this one. People have said it is a recreation, but its really not, he is “on-view”, not necessarily on stage, for nearly 90% of the play, and he is the lifeblood of this production, as he should be. The rest of the cast is also wonderful, and someone said the band is the sexiest you will see, and the music is wonderful. Michelle Williams sings beautifully and looks cute, but I don’t know why they give actresses that are not very seasoned accents to work with, Meryl Streep is the only one I think can bring it off, Michelle did not, and she is not the best dancer, but you don’t care because the material is terrific and the story is touching. But is Alan Cumming’s show all the way, if it wasn’t for Michelle Williams, I would give this 5 stars, so 4 stars.
