9781557043832: Cabaret: The Illustrated Book and Lyrics

The four 1998 Tony Awards given to the Roundabout Theatre's production of Cabaret add to the eight Tonys the musical won in 1966 and the eight Oscars the film version garnered in 1972. Surely one of the most acclaimed and beloved plays of all time, this modern classic is honored for the first time in a lavishly illustrated book. Here is the complete musical book by Joe Masteroff and all the words of the songs written by John Kander and Fred Ebb. It is illustrated with more than 100 photographs and drawings (including 74 in full color) of the original cast of the Roundabout 's smash Broadway production by Joan Marcus, never-before- published backstage photographs by Rivka Katvan, and archival photos of past productions. The accompanying text explores the evolution of the play in all its incarnations, from the 1930 stories of Christopher Isherwood to two films and three stage adaptations. Here are all the fantastic artists who have brought this play to life: Julie Harris (the original Sally Bowles), Joel Grey, Liza Minnelli, Natasha Richardson, Alan Cumming, Ron Rifkin, and directors Hal Prince, Bob Fosse, Sam Mendes, and Rob Marshall. Also featured are original drawings by costume designer William Ivey Long and set designer Robert Brill. For theatre lovers and film fans, for those who've seen the play and those who haven't, this book is an exclusive insider's glimpse into a stage and film phenomenon, one of the most astonishing artistic achievements of our time.

Review:

For those who just can't get enough of the Broadway revival of Cabaret, this lavishly illustrated book may be a dream come true. Cabaret: The Illustrated Book and Lyrics is a guide to the complete lyrics of the Broadway show, filled with plenty of photos from the production and scattered with notes and reviews from cast and critics alike. Alan Cumming gets the lion's share of attention here, both in striking photographs and in the form of a short diary excerpt he wrote during his NYC debut as the emcee. A few vintage photos from the original Cabaret production, the original watercolor costume designs by William Ivey Long, and the interior layout of the Kit Kat Klub fill out this impressively designed package. But the gorgeous shots of Cumming and Natasha Richardson really steal the show, making us remember why Cabaret is one Broadway revival that actually succeeded. --Jason Verlinde
