Bill Kenwright presents Rufus Norris’ multi award-winning production of Kander and Ebb’s landmark musical Cabaret, coming to the Regent Theatre, Tuesday 31 March – Saturday 4 April 2020.
Starring as the enigmatic Emcee is John Partridge, winner of Celebrity MasterChef in 2018, well known to TV audiences as EastEnders’ Christian Clarke, and one of West End theatre’s most prolific leading men (A Chorus Line, Chicago, and La Cage Aux Folles). The role of Sally Bowles will be played by Kara Lily Hayworth who recently won rave reviews across the country for her portrayal of Cilla Black inCilla the Musical, after she was discovered by Bill Kenwright during the show’s nationwide TV auditions. Singer and screen icon Anita Harris joins the cast of Cabaret in the role of Fraulein Schneider. Anita first rose to fame as a singer in the 1960s, beginning a lifelong career as a performer and actress. She has appeared both on screen (Follow That Camel and Carry on Doctor) and on stage, most notably as Grizabella in the West End’s Cats.
Kara says: “I owe a huge amount to Bill Kenwright! Back in 2017 when I first decided to go to the open auditions for Cilla, I had no idea how much my life would change. I had been working professionally for a long time, but this was a real turning point in my career, and I am so grateful to Bill for taking a chance on me. And now for him to trust me to take on another leading role (my absolute dream role) I feel so unbelievably lucky!”
It’s 1931, Berlin is a haven of divine decadence and the legendary Sally Bowles is about to take stage at the infamous Kit Kat Klub…
Cabaret features show-stopping choreography, dazzling costumes and iconic songs, including Money Makes the World Go Round, Maybe This Time and Cabaret.
Directed by critically acclaimed Rufus Norris and featuring the Olivier Award Winning Choreography by Javier De Frutos, the production has enjoyed two smash hit West End runs at The Lyric and The Savoy theatres.
