Saturday 21st October 2017, and onto my second show of the day, with a quick trip across Cardiff to the New Theatre, in the heart of the city, for an evening performance of ‘Cabaret’. Again, this is another show I have never seen, even the various films released I have been oblivious to, but this promises to be brilliant, with its casting of Louise Redknapp (Sally Bowles) and Will Young (Emcee), we have two actors with great singing voices, in the lead roles. I also note that Fraulein Schneider will be played by another fabulous actress in Susan Penhaligon.
Oh my god what a superb show, so impressed, the music, the singing, the theatrics, just oozes fabulousness. Really glad I managed to get a ticket for this sold out production. Louise and Will are just brilliant, with Charles Hagerty as Clifford Bradshaw making a superb triple. The whole cast are just fabulous, and just make this show so watchable.
The ending was so harrowing, really putting into place the events of the past in Germany of old. I must admit to a few tears at that point, so brilliantly done with such dramatism. Has to be one of the best shows I’ve seen in my short history of watching great theatre.
