Has it really been 25 years since Bob Fosse's film adaptation of Cabaret first galvanized audiences?

The answer is a resounding "yes." To commemorate the milestone, Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey, and John Kander and Fred Ebb will be on hand for a special benefit screening of Cabaret for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The screening will take place on Monday, Nov.17, at the Sony Lincoln Square Theatre in New York at 7 PM. A party will follow at the Hudson Theatre.

The 1972 film version of Cabaret, directed by Bob Fosse, was awarded eight Academy Awards. In addition to Minnelli and Grey -- who both won Oscars for their performances -- other stars of the film include Michael York, Marisa Berenson and Fritz Weaver.

Cabaret is based on the Tony Award-winning musical play about a nightclub singer in pre-World War II Berlin with a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander, and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The original Broadway production was directed by Harold Prince. Benefactor tickets, priced at $350 per person, include reserved seating and a priority telephone table in the "Kit Kat Klub" section of the post-screening party. Transportation to the party will be provided for those attending both of the events.

In addition to the $350 benefactor tickets, there are reserved tickets at $200, and non-reserved screening tickets at $125 and $25 each).

To order tickets and for more information, call Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS at (212) 840-0770.
