Cabaret

Kansas City Repertory Theatre

Seasoned theatergoers are sometimes tempted to skip smaller productions of the most canonical American musicals. Some come out of mothballs without necessarily adding to the legacy, and others are on a seemingly endless tour with national troupes. So there was no reason to assume that the Kansas City Repertory Theatre's spring rendition of Cabaret would be a drop-everything must. No reason except, of course, artistic director Eric Rosen's stylish approach and Brian Sills' commanding turn as the MC. Oh, and Sarah Beers' thrilling costumes. And wait, another thing: Set designer Jack Magaw's custom circle-in-the-round stage, which jutted into the seating area and made the 630-seat Spencer Theatre even more intimate than usual. Plus, the give-and-take between Claybourne Elder, playing novelist Clifford Bradshaw, and Kara Lindsay's Sally Bowles. So, right, never mind. This Cabaret showed just why some classics are classics. Is it too soon to beg for a revival of the revival?
