ALMOST A NEW MUSICAL FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN BEOFORE

It's been about four hours since we left the Keller Theater and I've finally stopped shaking. How can I have been so moved by a performance I've seen so many times, including the movie? I have also been exposed to Holocaust stories all my life,, and this one horrified me, all over again. The acting, the music, the set and the lighting were phenomenal Kudos especially to multi-talented actor/dancer/singer/musicians, and to he music direction. I was enchanted with how the pianist directed with his head, and moved around so he could be seen, but there was also music during blackouts. How did they do it? Thank you for an enriching theater experience. I am changed because of it.

EXCELLENT SHOW

Wonderful version of Cabaret to include acting, singing, and the musical accompaniment. The only flaw of the evening had nothing to do with the show itself, but the enjoyment of it, marred by, unfortunately, a long-standing issue: the hall's acoustics. We were in Box 8 this time, but have experienced this also in parts of the orchestra section at concerts.

MARVELOUS

Absolutely wonderful. Everything that you hope for in a musical but with a story that grabs your soul. Thank you for bringing this to Columbus.

NO TROUBLES HERE...

I didn't expect to be wowed by this one but I was and in a very good way. The talent was impressive from the cast, the production and the set. I loved how they kept the popular original music so close to original yet freshened up some of the others. It isn't possible to have a bad seat in this magnificent theatre. Buildings like this make me so proud to be from Philadelphia and I can't help but be filled with emotion when I think of the fascinating people that have starred on the stage or sat in the audience. This play is definitely not for the youngsters (under 16) but I would definitely take my Mom!

CABARET WAS VERY VERY GOOD

The play is very different from the movie which is not necessarily a bad thing. But we were a little disappointed with this interpretation of Sally Bowles. But Randy Harrison as the Emcee is truly magnificent! His performance alone is worth the price of admission.
