“Cabaret,” the winner of multiple Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Revival, is a raucous play that comes roaring to life in the infamous Kit Kat Klub where some of Broadway’s most memorable songs spill out onto the stage. While the emcee promises to help us forget all our troubles, Germany begins its descent into hell and we are reminded what happens when we bury our heads in the sand and forget to love our neighbors. The show is directed by Lee Soroko and stars Equity actors Lynn McNutt, Kathryn Johnston and Wayne LeGette, alongside graduate students in FAU’s MFA theatre program who are starring in their last production before they graduate and enter the world of professional theater.
