Cabaret Returns to Minneapolis


Posted on 7th October, by ParkandShop

This Tony Award-winning Broadway cabaret_300x300_web_new-592x432performance is a timeless musical, and it’s back on stage in Minneapolis. Cabaret is set in the seedy Kit Kat Klub in 1931 Berlin, when the Nazis were rising to power. The Master of Ceremonies oversees the nightlife at this club that metaphorically reflects the threatening state of late Weimar Germany. The Hennepin Theatre Trust website calls the show, “ (a) free-spirited decadence and heartbreaking desire that is CABARET!”

The original Broadway production opened in 1966, making this a very special 50th anniversary season. Between London and Broadway, the musical has had revivals in 1988, 1987, 1993, 1998, 2006, 2012, 2014, and now 2016. In 1998, the Broadway production was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and received 4.

You can enjoy the Cabaret experience again at the Orpheum Theatre. There are eight shows between Tuesday, October 18th and Sunday, October 23rd. Tickets are $39 – $139. All of the performances except the 2 pm show on 10/22 run during $6 parking at the Park and Shop ramps. These downtown Minneapolis ramps are close to the theatre and many other popular downtown destinations. The $6 parking special is available Monday – Saturday after 4 pm and all day on Sundays.
