Wilkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome! This joint production celebrates Krannert Center’s 50-year partnership with the School of Music, Lyric Theatre @ Illinois, Illinois Theatre, and Dance at Illinois. Come to the Cabaret and see the sexy, seedy Kit Kat dancers, doomed lovers Frau Schneider and Herr Schultz, and the inimitable Sally Bowles. With classic songs (“Maybe This Time,” “Two Ladies,” and of course the title song), fresh choreography, and an emphasis on the humanity of life in the Weimar Republic, this collaboration is sure to enchant.
Julie Gunn, conductor
