Full cast and creative team information has been announced for the New Repertory Theatre's production of the Kander and Ebb musical Cabaret, to play the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown, Massachusetts, January 11-February 1, with an opening on January 14. Rick Lombardo will direct, with musical direction by Todd C. Gordon and choreography by Kelli Edwards.

Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, the musical has a book by Joe Masteroff and is set in 1920's Berlin where Cliff, a lost American writer, enters the Kit Kat Club and gets caught in a sea of painted lips and rouged cheeks. He meets Sally Bowles, a burlesque star, who ensnares him with her wiles. History is in the making as the Nazis rise to power.

Aimee Doherty and John Kuntz will star as Sally Bowles and The Emcee. The principal cast will also include Paul D.
