The Recent Production of Cabaret at H·MAC Represented Immersive Theater at its Best

Cabaret came to The Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center October 5th, 6th& 7th at Stage on Herr. Patron’s review the show. “H·MAC should be commended for bringing this important show to Central Pennsylvania. It’s themes of fear, intolerance, and distrust of others are more relevant now than ever,” Mehrenberg concludes.

Cabaret the Musical hit the stage this past weekend at Stage on Herr, October 5th, 6th and 7th. Cabaret the Musical is based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood and a 1951 play by John Van Druten, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

Chris Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in Berlin, encounters Sally Bowles at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where she sings. When she is fired by the club’s owner, also her jealous boyfriend, she moves in with Cliff and the two fall in love. As the Nazis begin taking control of the German government, the atmosphere of the Kit Kat Klub and the lives of Cliff and Sally begin to change dramatically.

Rich Mehrenberg wrote a review on the show on Broadway World. Mehrenberg states “the recent production of Cabaret at H·MAC represents immersive theater at its best. Patrons sit at small tables, with drinks in hand, as the action unfolds in front of them, behind them, above them, and every once in a while, on them.”

Greg Athansasatos stars as Clifford Bradshaw and left the audience questioning his level of innocence. Mehrenberg claims “He plays the part with great moral ambiguity which is a perfect fit for a show filled with grays rather than blacks and whites.”

Chad-Alan Carr played the challenging role of the Emcee. The Emcee in Cabaret is supposed to make the audience like him but not fully put their trust in him. The Emcee is both part of the action within the Kit Kat Klub, while providing insight to the audience. Mehrenberg stated that Carr did an amazing job of devolving from charming to chilling over the course of the show. His second act number, If You Could See Her was “one of the most disturbing things I have seen in the context of musical theater in a long, long time,” explains Mehrenberg.

Chris Kapp and Samuel Eisenhuth play Fraulein Schneider and Herr Schultz. Kapp and Eisenhuth had amazing chemistry and portrayed Schneider and Schultz’s relationship in a very believable manner.

Mehrenberg wrote that the singing and dancing were strong throughout the entirety of the show. He stated that the eight-piece orchestra was tight and well-rehearsed and that the rest of the cast all created very distinct and believable characters which significantly increased the depth of the overall performance.

“H·MAC should be commended for bringing this important show to Central Pennsylvania. It’s themes of fear, intolerance, and distrust of others are more relevant now than ever,” Mehrenberg concludes.
