Kit Kat Boys Delve into the Darkest Depths Backstage at Cabaret
— who play Kit Kat Boys and also play musical instruments in Cabaret — took Playbill on a tour of Studio 54 where the revival of the John Kander and Fred Ebb classic plays eight shows a week. The pair explored the house (seats were removed so tables and chairs could be brought in to create an authentic cabaret experience) and backstage where the show's unseen magic takes place. See Cabaret stars chat about the sexual politics of the show.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
