Author Joe Masteroff attended the February 26 performance of The John W. Engeman Theater's critically acclaimed production of the musical Cabaret.

The work features a book by Masteroff with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

The principal cast includes Kate Fahrner (Sally Bowles), Adam Greer (Clifford Bradshaw), Jon Peterson (Emcee), Scott Robertson (Herr Schultz), Lori Wilner (Fraulein Schneider), Fred Rose (Ernst Ludwig), and Laura Shoop (Fraulein Kost).

The cast also includes Tammaso Antico (Victor), Richard Costa (Hans), Eric Jetner (Bobby), Michael Murnoch (Herman, Max), Shana Mahoney (Texas), Kelly Paredes (Helga), Christina Pawl (Rosie), Virginie Perier (Frenchie), Audrey Sennesse (Lulu), Andrea Christine Leigh (Ensemble, Gorilla), and Andrew Leggieri (Ensemble).
