Join the Deerfield Club of New England for the opening night of the winter theater production: Cabaret
Our pre-show reception will start at 6:00 pm with a chance to chat over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Later, Directors Catriona Hynds and Katie Speed will join us and share her behind-the-scenes insights about the 1930s version of this musical.
About the play: Cabaret takes place from 1929-1930, a time when Berlin, in the midst of a Post-World War I economic depression, is transitioning from an underground, avant-garde cultural epicenter to the beginnings of Hitler’s totalitarian regime and the rise of the Nazi Party. Into this world enters Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer looking for inspiration for his next novel. On his first night in Berlin, Cliff wanders into the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy nightclub overseen by the strange, omniscient and gender-bending Master of Ceremonies, “the Emcee.” Here, Cliff meets Sally Bowles, a vivacious, talented cabaret performer, and an utterly lost soul. As Cliff and Sally fall further into an unconventional romantic relationship, the world around them begins to change, and all are confronted with the looming horror that the Nazi Party will bring to their city.
