Our 2017-2018 Season

"From ordinary comes extraordinary."

Cabaret Theatre is proud to present a compelling, exciting 2017-2018 Season that exemplifies the power a black box theatre’s space possesses to transform, transport, and transcend. In every show Cabaret has produced in its forty-one seasons to date, the audience and the performers are taken on a journey that moves and intrigues them; we are proud to continue that legacy in our upcoming season. Taking this one step further, we aimed to expand on this goal by telling four stories in our Main Stage productions that encapsulate in their scenes and in their songs the potential in the commonplace and the possibilities in the everyday. In essence, Cabaret’s 42nd Season is our love letter to our black box space and the extraordinary things that can come out of our ordinary home.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS
Directed by Krystina Matos

A stirring play by Neil LaBute, this drama explores what we give up for love, what we risk for art, and how similar these two things can be. Centered around a young student, his dynamic relationship with a captivating graduate art student, and his best friends’ turbulent engagement, this play is a curious study into modern-day relationships and all the beauty and ugliness that comes with them. In under two hours and with just four characters, LaBute’s script directly tackles and challenges societal perceptions of ethics, art, humanity, and power. “Natural, beautiful, and malleable,” The Shape of Things leaves us with no definite answers, but instead with a myriad of gripping questions.

PIPPIN
Directed by Ajit J. Mathews

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) and a book by Roger O. Hirson, Pippin tells the profoundly human story of a man as he strives to rise above the mundane and to achieve something exceptional. Schwartz’s timeless pop-tinged music underscores and heightens Pippin’s journey through war, sex, politics, and love, ushered along by a mysterious but encouraging troupe of players. Deceptively lighthearted at face value, the musical’s tone quickly shifts and ultimately challenges the audience with one question: how far are you willing to go to be extraordinary?
