This is TheaterMania's third roundup of reviews for the 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It is 1933 in divinely decadent Berlin. Alexis Fishman (NYMF's Next Broadway Sensation Winner 2012) is Erika Stern, darling of the crumbling Weimar Cabaret scene. Feisty, sassy, and always provocative, her show embodies the excess and daring of the time. But as the Nazis rise to power, tonight's performance will be her last. The lights go down and the audience holds their breath.
