Why not go on a trip back to 1920s Berlin this weekend?
Closing out their 54th season, The Beverly Theatre Guild’s production of “Cabaret” is one you simply don’t want to miss. “Cabaret,” which was the inspiration for the 1972 film of the same name starring Liza Minelli, runs May 4-6 at the Morgan Park Academy Arts Center in Chicago.
With the emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, “Cabaret” explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama”, and “Two Ladies.”
There are three remaining performances May 4-6, so get your tickets today.
