SlideforCabaret_ending03-01-15_squareMarshall University Theatre’s production of CABARET will open as scheduled Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Francis-Booth Experimental Theatre located in the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.

The full schedule is Feb 18-21 and 26-28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 1 at 2:00 p.m.

“Cabaret” is based on a play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood. The musical was written by Joe Masteroff (book) with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

The play is set at the Kit Kat Klub, the perfectly marvelous cabaret where singer Sally Bowles meets writer Cliff Bradshaw. As the two pursue a life of pleasure in Weimar Berlin, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter. Sally and Cliff are faced with a choice: abandon themselves to pleasures promised by the cabaret, or open their eyes and face the coming storm.

“Cabaret” won eight Tony Awards in 1968, including Best Musical, and four Tony Awards in 1998, including Best Revival.

Tickets are $20 and $15, and Marshall students are admitted with a valid I.D. Call the box office at 304‐696‐2787 for more information.
