Cabaret preview

Cabaret preview

Cabaret is coming to Malaysia for the first time!

Created by the same creators of Chicago the musical—Kander & Ebb—in 1966 and ever since then, the musical has played to over 3,000 performances from Broadway to West End and the rest of the world like Europe, USA, Mexico, Australia and Singapore.

Now, the musical has finally reached the shore of Malaysia thanks to Pan Productions—the same production companies who produced the critically acclaimed musical “Always in Wonderland” last year in April 2010.

Director Nell Ng giving her introduction speech.

Cabaret will be directed by Nell Ng with Nish Tham as the musical director together with cast that includes Malaysia’s top performers and personalities—Stephanie Van Driesen, Peter Davis, Peter Ong, Bernie Chan, Aaron Khaled, Judimar Hernandez, Hunny Madu, Alizakri Alias, Sabrina Hassan, Suhaili Micheline, Trudy Ganendra, Davina Goh, Sarah Low, Alfred Choo and Paul Wong.

During the press conference held at Starbucks, Berjaya Times Square on 27 April 2011, the story of the musical was explained and the cast performed a snippet from the musical (watch a preview video below).

The background of the musical is set in Berlin, Germany 1931 in the “Kit Kat Klub”. It was a time of divine decadence, liberal thought and cultural transformation while the shadow of the Nazis threatens to engulf all of Europe.

Step inside the world of Sally Bowles, a cabaret performer (played by Stephanie Van Driesen), as she embarks on a torrid love affair with Clifford Bradshaw (played by Peter Davis), a young Englishman who has come to Berlin to seek inspiration for his new novel.

Set amidst the political and social upheaval of pre-Nazi Germany, this musical will allow you to indulge yourself in the unbridled sensuality of the club, revel amongst its morally ambiguous inhabitants, and plunge your decadent side into its glitz and glamour.

Just look at the big names among the cast, with that many great talents gathered in one musical, it is definitely one of the not-to-be-missed shows this year.

And according to the director Nell Ng, more than half of the tickets have already been sold out even before the press conference. So if you haven’t got your tickets yet, chances are you will become one of those lying on the bed, weeping through the night and regret why you didn’t buy the tickets earlier.

Okay, maybe not weeping, but you will regret.

Cabaret has become the #2 most popular show on StageKL ever since Pan Productions announced the staging of the musical.
