News   PHOTO CALL: Cabaret, With Bryce Ryness and Lisa O'Hare, at Reprise Theatre Company LA's Reprise Theatre Company opens their 2011-2012 season with the classic Kander and Ebb musical, Cabaret, starring Bryce Ryness, at UCLA's Freud Playhouse beginning Sept. 13 for a run through Sept. 25.

Here's a look at the production:

Cabaret, according to Reprise notes, "revolves around Sally Bowles, a performer in the seedy Kit Kat Club, Cliff Bradshaw, the young American writer she becomes involved with and the characters of the edgy, threatening world they inhabit, including landlady Fraulein Schneider, caught in a doomed romance with Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Club, a decadent and ominous symbol of the era."

Cabaret features a book by Joe Masteroff, based on the John Van Druten play "I Am a Camera" and the original stories by Christopher Isherwood. John Kander and Fred Ebb penned the Tony-Award winning score to the musical that features such hits as "Willkommen," "So What," "Don't Tell Mama" and the title song.

Jason Alexander is the artistic director of Reprise Theatre Company; Christine Bernardi Weil is managing director, and Gilles Chiasson is producing director.
