All Music Guide - Sarah Erlewine
While Cabaret written by the legendary Kander and Ebb team, who also gave us Chicago has always been on of the darkest and most potent musicals, this 1998 renaissance directed by Sam Mendes digs deeper and cuts harder than previous incarnations. Even seedier than the original and movie versions made famous by Liza Minelli in the lead role of Sally Bowles, a nightclub chanteuse, 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." The Tony award-winning cast in this 1998 version is invigorating, featuring performances by the astonishing Alan Cumming as the emcee and Natasha Richardson as a much more vulnerable Sally Bowles than the Minelli version. A definite must.

    A must

    I listened to this CD because my theater camp was performing the title song and I was absolutely hooked. Alan Cumming is perfect as the Emcee-dare I say it-better than Joel Grey, because he is a much darker character than Grey's. The closing moment of the show (I saw a community production) is one of the most powerful moments in Broadway history. Cabaret is sexy, funny, and incredibly tragic and moving. Check it out.

    Cabaret

    A friend recommended this CD to me, and though I was a little reluctant at first, (I've never really been a huge fan of Broadway Musicals) I gave it a try and I absolutely loved it! The songs are fantastic! I loved Mary Wilson's version of "So What", and I was surprised to find that Natasha Richardson is actually a great singer. I would definitely recommend this CD.

    I love this Musical.

    This is easily one of my favorite musicals. I'm a big broadway fan. I recommend this CD, along with the original Cabaret, with Jill Haworth, Bert Convy, Lotte Lenya, and Joel Gray.

    The Best Musical EVER

    I loved this soundtrack after the first second I heard Alan sing Wilkommen. Dont tell Mama, Two Ladies, and Money all are amazing. I wish I could have seen this live!
