When theatregoers buy a package of three or more Roundabout shows, including Cabaret, they will automatically be entered to win exclusive prizes that include tickets to the opening-night performance and party, a visit to a Cabaret photo shoot, the chance to attend a national television appearance with the cast and a backstage tour.
Winners will be announced weekly on Roundabout's website, Facebook and Twitter. For more information and complete contest rules, visit RoundaboutTheatre.org/EnterToWin.
Tickets to Cabaret are currently only available in packages of three or more shows.
Cumming (Macbeth, Threepenny Opera, Design for Living) will reprise his performance as Emcee, the show's master of ceremonies and the role that earned him the 1998 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Williams will make her Broadway debut as nightclub singer Sally Bowles.
Academy Award winner Mendes (director) and Academy Award nominee Marshall (co-director/choreographer), who were Tony-nominated for their work on the 1998 production, will return to recreate their direction and choreography from the 1998 Tony Award-winning production.
Complete casting will be announced at a later date.
The original design team will also return for the 2014 production, including set and club design by Robert Brill, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari and sound design by Brian Ronan. Patrick Vaccariello is the musical director.
Roundabout's production of Cabaret opened on Broadway March 19, 1998, starring Cumming and Natasha Richardson and won four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actor in a Musical. The production played for six years through Jan. 4, 2004. Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
