“There was a cabaret. And there was a master of ceremonies and there was a city called Berlin in a country called Germany. It was the end of the world,” writes Cliff, the narrator character in this classic musical, now back on Broadway. Alan Cumming reprises his Tony Award–winning role as the alluring (and dangerously seductive) Emcee, while Michelle Williams makes her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles (in performances through November 9), an expat chanteuse more brazen than talented. Don’t miss your last chance to see this dynamic duo perform together in this acclaimed musical. “Cabaret” is currently featured on Gilt City.
“Queen of the Night”
New York City’s sexiest dinner party has relaunched the legendary Diamond Horseshoe nightclub beneath the Paramount Hotel. Audience members—or participants, really—can expect an immersive and utterly unique mix of music, theatrical performances, chic design and intriguing food. From Randy Weiner, producer of “Sleep No More,” and the creators of The Box, “Queen of the Night” (loosely adapted from Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute”) redefines what to expect during a night at the theater. “Queen of the Night” is currently featured on Gilt City.
“The Real Thing”
When Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Thing” premiered in London 30 years ago, The New York Times called it “the most bracing play that anyone has written about love and marriage in years.” The show tells the story of Henry, a playwright in an unhappy marriage with Charlotte, who, ironically, is the lead actress in a play about an equally troubled relationship. As Henry’s affair with Annie threatens to destroy his marriage, he realizes that art has begun to imitate life. He’s then left wondering if his and Annie’s affair is fiction—or the real thing. Premiering October 2, the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production stars two-time Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Henry, Tony Award winner Cynthia Nixon as Charlotte and Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal as Annie. Don’t miss your chance to see the drama unfold on stage. “The Real Thing” is currently featured on Gilt City.
