Next Up: Life Is A CABARET, Old Chum!

 

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be playing Fräulein Schneider in Olney Theatre Center’s upcoming production of CABARET!Cabaret Logo Olney

In 1929 Berlin, Cliff arrives to work on his novel but finds himself swept up in the life of the cabaret with its bawdy Emcee, and swept away by the performer and provocateur Sally Bowles. Bunked together at Fräulein Schneider’s boarding house, their impossible affair bumps up against the threatened love between their landlady and a Jewish fruit seller. From the opening notes of “Willkommen” through the title song and such classics as “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Money,” Cabaret delivers a raw theatrical experience on a knife’s edge between unbridled sexuality and looming disaster. Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot, Kiss Me Kate) makes his OTC debut.

This is one of my “bucket list” roles – equal parts humor and pathos – and I’m excited to work with director Alan Paul on the project. CABARET opens August 28th and will be performed on the OTC Mainstage through October 6th. To buy tickets and get more information, visit the OTC website.
