Life Is A Cabaret! The Songs Of Kander & Ebb
Performance At 1:00 PM on Wednesday, September 12
Musical theatre wouldn’t be what it is without the American songwriting team of composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb. Great songs like Isn’t This Better from Funny Lady, All That Jazz from Chicago, and Cabaret from…you guessed it…Cabaret only make up a fraction of their great American song book. You’ll want to make sure to attend to hear the catchy, influential music of our favorite duo.
Weekend Performances: November 30 Through December 16, 2018
Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond as we all take a journey to discover whether his life has mattered at all. Cinematically scored and theatrically staged, this adaption breathes musical life into a familiar story while retaining the warmth, humor and pathos of the original. The Memorial Opera House is delighted to wrap up our 125th anniversary celebration with this new holiday classic for devotees and newcomers alike.
