Director Brad Kisner says, "Based on events that took place during a dark historical period, Cabaret is a collection of brilliant sketches of a society in decay. Big Noise Theatre's production looks to realistically portray the individuals who lived during this time through the lens of a great American musical."
Welcome to the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee ( David Geinosky ), Sally Bowles ( Laura Sportiello ), and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd - and leave their troubles outside. But as life in 1930s Germany grows more uncertain; will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife be enough to get them through their dangerous times? One of the most powerful and popular musicals of the 20th century, the score contains many well known hits including "Willkommen," "Mein Herr," "Maybe This Time," and the title song "Cabaret."
The cast includes- David Geinosky ( Elk Grove ), Laura Sportiello ( Chicago ), Dan Gold( Chicago ), Lauren Miller ( Chicago ), Ken Rubenstein ( Chicago ), Andrew Thayer( Hoffman Estates ), Alli Braun ( Oak Park ).
