Cabaret comes to The Caldwell Theatre

From Oct 14th through 24th, 2010.

alt“Come to the Cabaret, old chum, come hear the music play!” That’s the invitation issued by theatrical producer Vicki Halmos, founder of the Palm Beach Principal Players, who’s new production company – Entr’Acte Theatrix – will be presenting the Tony Award-winning, Kander and Ebb musical Cabaret at the Count de Hoernle Theatre (Caldwell Theatre) in Boca Raton.

“Entr’Acte Theatrix plans to produce at least two musical shows each season that are edgier and more relevant than those traditionally presented by Palm Beach Principal Players,” said Halmos. “Cabaret is the perfect show to follow our critically acclaimed production of Hair that wowed audiences at the Caldwell last June.”

“While we had actors from around the country come to Palm Beach County to star in Hair, for Cabaret we cast young performers who were trained in South Florida along with some longtime local theater veterans,” said Halmos. “This is the goal of Entr’Acte Theatrix – to give emerging talents from South Florida the opportunity to get those critical professional theater credits before contemplating a move to New York, or any other larger arena. Unfortunately, professional performing opportunities for these young artists are relatively scarce in our area, in comparison to other municipalities around the country.”

Accordingly, the upcoming production of Cabaret will feature a large cast – many of whom are graduates of local high schools, colleges and universities – including Shane Blanford, Leah Sessa, Ryan Michael Owens, Jeanne McKinnon and Greg Halmos. Cabaret will be directed and choreographed by Kimberly Dawn (KD) Smith, a protégé of the late Broadway wunderkind Michael Bennett.

With music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, the Entre’Acte Theatrix production of Cabaret will be closer to the darker and more erotic 1998 Broadway version which included songs like “Maybe This Time” and “Money” from the Oscar-winning1972 movie (directed by Bob Fosse) that were not part of the original 1966 production.
