“Cabaret” set to launch at Bucks Center for Performing Arts


“Cabaret,” presented by the Bucks County Center for the Performing Arts, opens July 17, at Delaware Valley University and runs until July 28.

The show is being directed by Irene Molloy, who directed “The Fantasticks” last season for BCCPA.

Meredith Beck, who played Liza in “My Fair Lady” for BCCPA in the 2017 season, is playing Sally Bowels in “Cabaret.”

Both Molloy and Beck were born and raised in Doylestown.

The original “Cabaret” opened in 1966 with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Joe Masteroff.

The musical premiered in the West End on Feb. 28, 1968, at the Palace Theatre starring Judi Dench as Sally Bowels, Kevin Colson as Cliff Bradshaw and Joel Grey as the Emcee.

Cabaret was produced three times on Broadway in 1966, 1987 and 1998.

The movie opened in 1972 starring Liza Minelli as Sally, and Joel Grey came back for his classic rendition of the Emcee.

The song “Maybe This Time” was written for the movie and remains with the show today. The song “Cabaret” itself is one of America’s most popular songs.
