My sister saw the stage production recently in Washington DC and was disappointed. But anyone who remembers the original movie (and show I guess) with Liza Minelli would be disappointed, I think. Liza was BORN to play that part. It was really a pinnacle for her and director Bob Fosse. And Joel Grey, of too. What a great story and synthesis of all the theatrical elements to tell an incredible morality tale.

Th London stage version from 30 or so years ago was quite something, with Judi Dench as Sally Bowles. My memory is that it also had Joel Grey as the MC who repeated the role in the film.

Judi Dench? I didn't know that. I agree that Liza IS Sally Bowles.

Review of <I>Cabaret</I> in The Australian:

By Deborah Jones
August 26, 2002

The Mendes production, restaged in Australia by B. T. Nicholl and associate choreographer Cynthia Onrubia, is full of confronting detail. When friendly Ernst Ludwig (Tyler Coppin) comes to Fraulein Schneider and Herr Schultz's engagement party, the simple taking off of a coat causes a gasp.

<B>Cabaret's dark revival</B>
November 25 2002
By Alan Veitch
The Age

Although it's been years since Judi Connelli first saw the Oscar-winning movie Cabaret, she recalls being mesmerised by the performances of its singing stars, Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey. Connelli only vaguely remembers a minor character, the landlady called Fraulein Schneider.

Now, Melbourne theatre audiences are about to discover that Fraulein Schneider, in Sam Mendes' stage version of Cabaret, is no longer a minor role. She's crucial to the plot. And Connelli's portrayal of her scored rave reviews during the Sydney season.

The Melbourne season opens on December 11 at Her Majesty's Theatre and, according to Connelli, anyone who has seen the movie should forget it, because the this stage version is an entirely new experience.

A very Chicago perspective:

Cabaret review, Karen Mason at Davenport's

Sid Smith, Metromix

There are performers who come out of Chicago, and then there are those who seem to belong to the city, stars whose lights shine brightest here, whose fans harbor proprietary feelings of kinship and outright love.

<B>Lisa and the Cabaret</B>
December 12 2002
By John Mangan

Eight years ago British theatre and film director Sam Mendes breathed new life into the stage show Cabaret in London's West End. Last night his production burst on to the Melbourne stage with much-loved former television cop Lisa McCune reminding the opening night audience that life is, indeed, a cabaret.
