Two Of Us Productions Presents ‘Cabaret’, Nov 19 – 21

 

The Two Of Us Productions presents ‘Cabaret’ with three performances this weekend – November 19, 20, and 21. 

At its heart CABARET is a dramatic commentary told through three parallel story lines: the younger couple who are denying reality, the “toast of Mayfair” Fraulein Sally Bowles and the aspiring novelist Cliff Bradshaw from America; a dramatic & gently romantic sub-plot of love denied in the endearing older couple Fraulein Schneider & Herr Schultz; and the social commentary of the Master Of Ceremonies that was played by Joel Grey in the original production & by Alan Cummings in this 1998 version.  The Kit Kat Klub performers that this show is so well known for work with the Master of Ceremonies in commenting on the dark cloud of National Socialism that is engulfing 1930’s Germany & how the gathering storm is impacting the principle characters.  

CABARET features Constance Lopez as the Master of Ceremonies, Betsy Rees as Sally Bowles, Stephen Foust as Cliff Bradshaw, Benita Zahn as Fraulein Schneider, Fred Sirois as Herr Schultz, Brian Yorck as Ernst Ludwig, Andrew Stein as Klub owner Max, and Candace Wood as the always hospitable Fraulein Kost.  CABARET also features a dynamite group of singers & dancers on-stage at The Kit Kat Klub, including Karissa Payson as Helga, Cathy Hunt Wheelock as Frenchie, Debra Tice Hughes as Texas, Lauren Wicks as Rosie, Emily Fuller as Lulu, Fran Martino as Bobby, Matt Leinung as Hans, and Black Schober as Victor.  The Kit Kat Klub orchestra will be on-stage live & in-person, so Sally Bowles really means it when she says “come hear the band!”

Mac-Haydn Theatre Presents Man of La Mancha

Opening next at The Mac-Haydn, is Man of La Mancha. Running August 26 through September 5.

A moving tale about a man’s refusal to give up his impossible dream, inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ masterpiece Don Quixote. Powerful, brutal, hilarious, and heartbreaking, it celebrates the perseverance of someone who refuses to relinquish his ideals or his passion.

The celebrated score includes “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” and “Dulcinea.”

Leading the cast as Miguel De Cervantes/Don Quixote is Mac-Haydn favorite Gabe Belyeu, known for his performances in previous years as Javert in Les Miserables, Arthur in Camelot, and Tateh in Ragtime. Maya Cuevas, last seen as Catherine in the 2021 production of Pippin, returns as Aldonza. Audiences will remember Cuevas for her standout performance as Sarah in the award-winning 2019 production of Ragtime. Continuing his debut season at the Mac-Haydn, Anthony Velez plays Sancho Panza.

Rounding out the cast are Kylan Ross as Padre, Andrew Burton Kelley as the Duke and Dr. Carrasco, Chris Frazier as the Captain and Barber, Kelly Gabrielle Murphy as Antonia, and Rachel Pantazis as the Housekeeper.

Man of La Mancha is directed by Todd Underwood and associate directed by Erin Spears Ledford, with movement coordination by Ashley DeLane Burger and music direction by David Maglione. The production features original costume design by Kurt Alger and coordination by Daniel Hewson, hair and makeup design by Matthew Oliver, and lighting and scenic design by Andrew Gmoser.
