The King and I

With a plot-line as slow moving as The King and I, the performance and technical aspects need to be astounding to balance out and put on a good show. Sadly, the current version of this classic production is mediocre at best.

Cabaret Review

The current remount of Sam Mendez and Rob Marshall’s 1998 production, Cabaret, is a must-see musical. Based in the years 1929-1930, Cabaret tells the outlandish tale of life in Berlin, Germany pre-WWII.

The audience hadn’t even…
