A word from the director

As Cabaret unfolds, its many resonances with our current moment become – I hope – quite clear.  I could expand on this story’s contemporary relevance but as I write these words, I find myself instead reflecting on another aspect of the musical: the pursuit of pleasure. When life is dark, when we’re focused on survival, when the world does not make sense - and life in Weimar Berlin was chaotic, stressful and turbulent - how could we not want to seek out joy, transcendence, euphoria and escape, however illusory? Of course, taken to excess, pleasure can be destructive. But pleasure, profound or fleeting, is meaningful, and in the last few years I don’t think I’ve made enough space for it in my life. 

In the exhausting, topsy-turvy second year of this pandemic, it’s been an absolute joy to work with the students on this production, and I thank everyone on the team for their commitment, enthusiasm and artistry. It is a privilege and a very real pleasure to bring Cabaret to life with them, for you, our liebe, cher, dear audience.
