At the time of its closing, the Tony-winning production will have played 37 previews and 2,378 performances. Cabaret opened on Broadway March 19, 1998, at the Kit Kat Club (Henry Miller's Theatre, currently home to Urinetown). However, a construction accident on the block forced Roundabout and the production into quick thinking. On Nov. 12 the show moved into Studio 54, which Roundabout eventually purchased and which will house its upcoming production of Assassins.

The revival of Cabaret was directed by Sam Mendes, with choreography and co-direction by Rob Marshall. The two are seen at left with Roundabout Theatre Company artistic director Todd Haimes at the closing night party, held upstairs at Studio 54, the former nightclub. Also seen are Susan Egan, the final Sally Bowles, and Deborah Gibson, former Sally Bowles. Below, the cast takes their final curtain call.

Cabaret features a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb.
