The legendary Broadway musical by Joe Masteroff, Cabaret, has been selling out the RTP Theater since opening night, but don’t worry, Richmond’s leading LGBTQ performance space has extended the production to allow for more to enjoy the show.
GayRVA’s own theater critic, Jen Maciulewicz, called Cabaret “fantastic,” so make sure you get your tickets before the next series of shows sells out as well!
Due to audience demand, the production has scheduled an additional eight performances and will now play through July 19, instead of its previously announced closing date of July 5.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Richmond audiences have been bowled over by this wonderful production of CABARET,” said managing director Philip Crosby. “We are so happy we can accommodate the people who still wish to see it by scheduling these extra performances.”
CABARET will run Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8 pm now through July 19, with Sunday matinees June 29, July 6 and July 13 at 4 pm.
CABARET changed the face of Broadway in the late 1960s, in an acclaimed production directed by Hal Prince, with a star-making performance by Joel Grey as the Master of Ceremonies (Emcee). It was adapted by director/choreographer Bob Fosse into an Academy Award-winning motion picture in the 1970s (this time with a star-making performance by Liza Minnelli as Sally Bowles and Grey returning to his signature role, both winning Oscars). Grey returned to Broadway with a revival of the Prince staging in 1987.
All performances will take place at Richmond Triangle Players’ theater at 1300 Altamont Avenue, just northwest of the intersection of the Boulevard and West Broad Street. Reserved seat tickets ($35 for Fridays and Saturdays, $32 for Thursday and Sundays, with discounts for groups and students) can be purchased online at RTP’s web site at www.rtriangle.org, on RTP’s facebook page, or by leaving a message on the RTP Ticket hotline at 804-346-8113.
