What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play…

MSM’s production of Cabaret—put together by a team of Broadway veterans including director Don Stephenson, choreographer and MSM Associate Dean & Director of Musical Theatre Liza Gennaro, and musical director David Loud—presents for the first time a version of the show that John Kander, according to Gennaro, “always wanted to see.” Kander, the sole living author of Cabaret, was asked for his preferred version of the show and answered with moments, cuts, and restorations originating from all of Cabaret‘s major revisions.

John Kander visits MSM

The cast of Cabaret had a very special guest at rehearsal — the composer himself, John Kander, who gave valued feedback to the performers. Scroll down for footage of his visit!

“The recent production of Cabaret by Manhattan School of Music’s Musical Theatre program totally blew me away. The talent and dedication of the students brought me back to the original excitement I felt in 1966 when the show premiered. I am so grateful to the program for giving me that experience and I wish I could hire each and every one of them.”

John Kander, Composer, Cabaret

SLIDESHOW: John Kander gave feedback and advice to the performers between scenes. "It's great working with the kids; you get their take on the material that was written long before they were born," he said. "It's very touching and exciting for me to find out what that feels like in their mind."

Watch John Kander work with MSM's Musical Theatre students on a new version of his production!

Cabaret at Carnegie Hall!

The 2018/2019 school year marked the Centennial anniversary of Manhattan School of Music — a milestone that was celebrated throughout each semester, culminating in a final performance at Carnegie Hall. Members of the Cabaret cast were invited to perform in front of a sold out Isaac Stern Auditorium and they were a huge hit!
