‘Cabaret’ Heats up ONU Stage
The Ohio Northern University Freed Center for the Performing Arts presents the Tony Award-winning musical "Cabaret." Performances begin Wednesday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m., with a pre-show discussion at 7:15 p.m. Additional performances take place Thursday, Feb. 12, at 8 p.m.; Friday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 14, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Feb. 15, at 2 p.m. All showings will be in the Stambaugh Studio Theatre.
Set in Berlin in 1929, "Cabaret" follows the tumultuous love story of Kit Kat Klub performer Sally Bowles and American writer Cliff Bradshaw. The master of ceremonies welcomes patrons to the cabaret, where they forget their troubles, although his songs provide wry commentary on the state of affairs in Germany at the close of the 1920s. Songs like "It Couldn't Please Me More," "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama," and "Two Ladies" add to this powerful production.
Tickets are $15 for general admission.
