News   PHOTO CALL: Cabaret Meet and Greet with Amanda Palmer
The American Repertory Theater held a meet and greet for its staging of Kander and Ebb's dark musical Cabaret, which will feature The Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer in a gender-bending turn as the Emcee.

Known for her work as a performance artist, musician and half of the Brechtian duo The Dresden Dolls, Palmer will star in the A.R.T. production that will be presented in an environmental staging under the direction of Steven Bogart. Cabaret will run Aug. 31-Oct. 29 at Oberon.

In addition to Palmer, the cast will feature A.R.T. veterans Aly Trasher as entertainer Sally Bowles, Matt Wood as writer Cliff Bradshaw, Remo Airaldi as Herr Schultz, David Costa as Ernst Ludwig, Claire Davies as Fraulein Kost, Thomas Derrah as Fraulein Schneider, and Jeremy Geidt as Max.

The ensemble will include Renee-Marie Brewster, Lucille Duncan, Tamara Hickey, Eric Johnson, Jordy Lievers, Gaetano Pugliese, Annika Franklin, Chris Thomas and Edward Walsh.

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.

Here is a look at the meet and greet, along with some promotional art for the production:
