Cabaret at the Savoy Theatre
Cabaret is a musical based on a book written by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The 1966 Broadway production became a hit and spawned the Oscar winning 1972 film starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey as well as numerous subsequent productions.
It is based on John Van Druten's 1951 play I Am a Camera, which in turn was adapted from the 1939 short novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood. Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies (Will Young) at the Kit Kat Klub.
The production, which is choreographed by Javier de Frutos, will play a four-week UK tour before opening at the Savoy. It will visit the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton (3-8 September), Theatre Royal, Nottingham (10-15 September), Theatre Royal, Norwich (17-22 September) and The Lowry, Salford (24-29 September).
Starring Will Young as the Emcee.
Further casting to be announced.
