It should be a "Perfectly Marvelous" day for the creators and cast of the hit revival of Cabaret March 19, when the show celebrates its fourth year on Broadway.

Now the third longest-running Broadway revival, the Roundabout Theatre Company production will commemorate its anniversary with an invitation-only champagne toast prior to the show's March 19 performance.

Those scheduled to attend include composer John Kander, lyricist Fred Ebb, book writer Joe Masteroff, Roundabout artistic director Todd Haimes, Natasha Richardson — who originated the role of Sally for this revival — and the musical's current stars, Molly Ringwald and Raul Esparza.

The Roundabout Theatre Company's Cabaret opened on Broadway on March 19, 1998, in a production directed by Sam Mendes with co-direction and choreography by Rob Marshall. The critically-hailed revival won four 1998 Tonys including Best Revival of a Musical as well as awards to Alan Cumming (Leading Actor in a Musical), Natasha Richardson (Leading Actress in a Musical) and Ron Rifkin (Featured Actor in a Musical). The current cast includes Molly Ringwald as Sally Bowles and Raul Esparza as the Emcee. Jane Leeves joins the company as Sally Bowles April 29, and recent Follies star Polly Bergen is set to play the world-weary Fraulein Schneider from March 25 through June 23.

Tickets for Cabaret may be purchased at the Studio 54 box office, 254 West 54th Street, or through TeleCharge at (212) 239-6200.
