Cabaret Live Performances

Jerry Herman Ring Theatre at UM
1312 Miller Drive, Coral Gables
305.284.3355 (Box Office)

Jerry Herman Ring Theatre kicks off its new season with the multiple Tony Award-winning musical Cabaret, a ground-breaking Broadway show that seamlessly blends together elements of music, comedy, sex and drama. Set against the dark backdrop of pre-World-War-II Berlin, the action takes place in the seedy Kit Kat Klub where pimps, prostitutes and brash showgirls would rather drink, party and dance than face up to the growing menace around them. The show's score was lauded by the N.Y. Times as one of the few Broadway scores "with the kind of lingering power that comes from pungent musicality tied to memorable emotions." Performances run throught October 11. Weds - Sat at 8 p.m. and Sat - Sun at 2 p.m. Tickets are priced at $18-$22 general admission; $16-$18 seniors and UM faculty, staff and alumni; and $8-$10 for students. Warning: Contains strong adult language and themes.
