William and Mary’s arts-and-sciences program is home to a capacious theater department, whose wide range of productions challenges audiences with demanding contemporary plays as well as revamped dramas and musicals that have stood the test of time. Drawn from Joe Masteroff’s classic book, Cabaret captivates theatergoers with its heartbreaking story of a young cabaret dancer falling in love with an American writer in 1929 Berlin. Although the musical originally hit Broadway in 1966, revivals have riffed on the play’s themes, injecting edgy and sensual elements through bold choreography, symbolic costumes, and lighting supplied entirely by functioning tractor beams. Music composed by John Kander infuses each performance with melody-driven suspense, and lyrics from Fred Ebb drift gracefully from the stage to deliver an earnest tug to the strings of all open-eared hearts.
