Commentaires : This was, to date, the darkest and most gritty interpretation of “Cabaret”. During “Tomorrow Belongs to Me”, sung by a fresh-voiced Aryan youth, the company cavorted nude like the naturists of the period. In the finale the same
naked dancers piled up on top of each other in the gas chambers. This compelling, fearless and frank production was not to everyone’s taste, but it ran the best part of two years, and won an Olivier Award for Sheila Hancock. It closed on June 21st 2008.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Inventive, musically vigorous production." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Rufus Norris's production of the Kander/Ebb classic is the most stunningly fresh and imaginative revival of a classic musical that I have ever seen." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Forty years after its premiere, Cabaret increasingly looks like one of the defining musicals of the postwar era." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Sensuality is missing." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "This is a strong and daring revival of a great musical that combines unforgettable songs with genuinely gripping and disturbing drama."
