Cabaret [1986 London Cast Recording]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Sarah Erlewine
One of the classics of the Broadway theatre, Cabaret explores the German nightlife in 1930s Nazi Germany. The focus is on three separate couples and a troupe of nightclub performers, led by one devastating and compelling emcee. The music is enchanting and uninhibited, and the score features several classics including "Don't Tell Mama," "Tomorrow Belongs to Me," "Money" and the titular "Cabaret." Cabaret first opened in 1966 in New York to radiant reviews and ran for 1, 165 performances. The film version, released in 1972, only served to bolster an already awed audience's reaction by altering the musical to suit lead Liza Minelli's strengths. In 1986, a London revival ...

In 1986, a London revival cast recorded their interpretation of the musical. This is not to be confused with the hugely successful London revival in 1998 directed by Sam Mendes and starring Alan Cumming -- the 1986 version is not as powerful. However, Cabaret is good in nearly any circumstances, so this could hardly be considered a "bad" recording.

    A softer rendition

    I'm definitely not very impressed by this rendition of Cabaret. I find the movie sound track to be much more powerful and emotional than this one. Liza Minelli IS Sally Bowles, in my mind at least. I've yet to hear anyone come close to her portrayal of Sally. Her voice is powerful and raw, compared to the rather soft and weak performance in other casts. I wholeheartidly reccomend the Cabaret movie sound track instead of this one.

    Wayne Sleep: As Good As the Emcee Gets

    This heartful rendition of the play that's winning Tony Awards all over the place is absolutely the best recording that I've ever heard (when in comparison to the recordings of the movie soundtrack, original Broadway soundtrack, New Broadway soundtrack, and 1999 Studio Cast soundtrack) Wayne Sleep does an incredible job as the Emcee and made me laugh and cry at the same time with his rendition of the evil, yet sometimes comical Emcee.
