Claybourne Elder, Kara Lindsay, Hollis Resnick, et al. Set for Kansas City Rep's Cabaret
For this musical about life in and around a Weimar era cabaret in Berlin, the theater will be refitted with a 360-degree, rotating theatre-in-the-round stage that will provide certain theatergoers with a behind-the-scenes perspective, allowing them to see the run crew, scenery load-in, actors in the wings and other activities not scene by the house audience.
The company will feature Claybourne Elder (Clifford Bradshaw), Kara Lindsay (Sally Bowles), Hollis Resnik (Fräulein Schneider), Brian Sills (Master of Ceremonies), KC Comeaux (Bobby/Kit Kat Klub Boy/Ensemble), Jerry Jay Cranford (Max/ Kit Kat Klub Boy/Ensemble), Jenny Florkowski (Kit Kat Klub Girl/Ensemble), Charles Fugate (Ernst Ludwig), Colleen Grate (Kit Kat Klub Girl/Ensemble), Gary Neal Johnson (Herr Schultz), Bryan LaFave (Victor/ Kit Kat Klub Boy/Ensemble), Mandy Morris (Kit Kat Klub Girl/Ensemble), Kym Chambers Otto (Kit Kat Klub Girl/Ensemble), Vanessa Severo (Fräulein Kost/Ensemble), and Emily Shackelford (Kit Kat Klub Girl/Ensemble).
The creative team will include Jack Magaw (scenic design); Sarah Beers (costume design); David Weiner (lighting design), and Zachary Williamson (sound design).
