ENMU Schedules Performances
PORTALES--The original version of the smash Broadway hit "Cabaret"
will be playing in the Eastern New Mexico University Ballroom from Feb.
28 through March 3, with a Sunday afternoon matinee.
The show is set in Berlin between the two World Wars, and depicts the
lives of several characters and how they are affected by the rise of
the Nazism. Sally Bowles is the star of the Kit Kat Klub, a Berlin nightclub.
She meets--and inserts herself into the life of--Clifford Bradshaw,
a young American writer traveling Europe in search of inspiration for
his first novel. Clifford rents a room from Fraulein Schneider, a German
woman who was born into a wealthy family but lost her wealth and love.
Another of her tenants is Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit shop owner who
falls hard for his landlady. The cast includes a cynically amusing Master
of Ceremonies, a group of beautiful Kit Kat Girls, Fraulein Kost, a
woman with a lust for life, and the sinister Ernst Ludwig, a Nazi sympathizer.
