CABARET
New York theater audiences have enjoyed plenty of opportunities to see “Cabaret” since it first debuted on Broadway in 1966. With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and source material that runs back to Christopher Isherwood’s 1939 semiautobiographical “Goodbye to Berlin,” it’s no surprise it’s always been a gay favorite.

But probably never more than since Alan Cumming, as the Emcee, snagged a Tony for the 1998 revival at Studio 54. Cumming’s been back with the show since early this year, first with Michelle Williams, whom Gay City News critic Christopher Byrne termed “brilliant” in the role of Sally Bowles, and now with Emma Stone sharing the stage.

As for Cumming’s performance this year, Byrne wrote it “is darker and more pointed than I recall, and there is a subversive anger pulsing through it that offers gripping counterpoint to Williams’ Sally. Cumming remains the consummate entertainer, however, and the Emcee’s adorable creepiness is galvanizing down to the last shattering moments of the show.”

Trust our readers and see the show.
