By Michael Gioia
Rufus Norris' remounting of his Olivier Award-winning production of Kander and Ebb's Cabarert begins performances at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton Sept. 3. The UK tour, which precedes a limited West End engagement, officially kicked off Aug. 30 in Bromley.
Following the UK tour, which will conclude Sept. 29 at the The Lowry in Salford Quays, the production will begin performances Oct. 3 at the West End's Savoy Theatre. Opening night is set for Oct. 9.
Michelle Ryan, best known for playing Zoe Slater in "EastEnders" for five years and the title role in the remake of "The Bionic Woman," plays Sally Bowles, and singer-songwriter is the Emcee.
In the musical, Young and Ryan are joined by Siân Phillips (Hedda Gabler, BBC's "I Claudius," "Clash of the Titans") as Fraulein Schneider, Matt Rawle (Martin Guerre at the Prince Edward Theatre, Evita at the Adelphi) as Cliff, Linal Haft ("Moulin Rouge!") as Herr Schultz and Nicholas Tizzard as Ernst. Harriet Thorpe (BBC's "The Brittas Empire"), from the original Norris production, reprises her role as Fraulein Kost.
The ensemble includes John Brannoch, Jessica Ellen, Allessia Lugoboni, Edd Mitton, Ian Parsons, Nuno Silva, Rebecca Sutherland, Shahla Tarrant, Laura Tyrer, Cydney Uffindell-Phillips and Matthew Wesley.
Cabaret will play a 15-week-only engagement at The Savoy Theatre in London's West End. The production features design by Katrina Lindsay and choreography by Javier De Frutos.
