Leave your troubles outside!
So….life is disappointing? Forget it!
In here life is beautiful…..the girls are beautiful…
….even the orchestra is beautiful!

Willkommen! The process of directing this haunting musical has been a joy for me because my cast is amazingly talented and creative; my crew loyal and steadfast. The musical numbers in the Kit Kat Klub will entertain, raise eyebrows, and perhaps cause a few hearts to beat more rapidly. My personal connection with ‘Cabaret’ is with the characters of Herr Schultz and Fraulein Schneider. Two everyday people caught in a… political nightmare. One eternal optimist who refuses to believe anything bad will happen; and the other, unable to break the status quo and fight for a little happiness. I search my own soul and wonder if I would have the courage to fight evil, or even the wisdom to recognize it. I ask the audience: ‘What would you do?’
