‘Life is a CABARET my friend!’

COPAKE — The Two Of Us Productions, a local theater company based in Copake NY, is pleased to return to live in-person theater with CABARET, the award winning musical drama by Joe Masteroff, with music by John Kander & lyrics by Fred Ebb. Performances are Nov. 12th, 13th, 14th, and the following weekend of Nov. 19th, 20th, & 21st, 2021. Presented in the intimate Copake Grange Theater in Copake NY, you don’t want to miss this true tale of bigotry, intolerance, religious prejudice, and social upheaval.

At its’ heart CABARET is a dramatic commentary told through three parallel story lines: the younger couple who are denying reality, the “toast of Mayfair” Fraulein Sally Bowles and the aspiring novelist Cliff Bradshaw from America; a dramatic & sweetly romantic sub-plot of love denied in the endearing older couple Fraulein Schneider & Herr Schultz; and the social commentary of the Master Of Ceremonies that was played by Joel Grey in the original production & by Alan Cummings in this 1998 version. The Kit Kat Klub performers that this show is so well known for work with the Master of Ceremonies in commenting on the dark cloud of National Socialism that is engulfing 1930’s Germany & how the gathering storm is impacting the principle characters.

Performances of CABARET are 2 weekends only – November 12th, 13th, 14th, and the following weekend of November 19th, 20th, & 21st, 2021 Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees are at 3pm. The comfortable & intimate Theater at The Grange is located at The Copake Grange at 628 Empire Road in downtown Copake NY across from the Clocktower Pub. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students & seniors, and $12 for groups & families. For advance reservations visit www.TheTwoOfUsProductions.org or call 518-758-1658.
