April 21-24, 2022
TU Theatre presents the 1998 revival of the musical Cabaret April 21-24 in Kendall Hall’s Chapman Theatre on the TU campus. Daring, provocative and exuberantly entertaining, Cabaret explores the dark and heady life of bohemian Berlin as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, the 1998 revival was a winner of multiple Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.
In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, an omniscient master of ceremonies welcomes the audience to the Cabaret and assures them they will forget all their troubles. With the emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, we see the story unfold in this play within a play. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff’s and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen”, “Cabaret”, “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies”.

Falsettos By William Finn and James Lapine • Directed by Machele Dill
Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.
