Cabaret
Friday - Sunday , July 31 - August 2
Starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York & Helmut Griem

8 Oscars went to this lavish movie musical, including a Best Actress Award to showstopper Lisa Minnelli! Don't miss it back on our 25' screen in 45 speaker surround-sound!

English author Christopher Isherwood, who created the character of Sally Bowles for a 1937 short story, enjoyed the attention the movie brought to his career, but he felt Liza Minnelli was too talented for the role. According to him, Sally Bowles was based upon Jean Ross, an amateur singer who lived under the delusion that she had star quality, the antithesis of "Judy Garland's daughter".

Years before Cabaret was filmed, Liza Minnelli performed "Maybe This Time" when she appeared with her mother Judy Garland at the London Palladium.

Liza Minnelli designed her hair and make-up with the aid of her father, director Vincente Minnelli. Liza and her father modeled the visual look of Sally Bowles upon Jazz Age flapper icons such as Louise Brooks and Colleen Moore. In a 2006 interview, Liza recalled that she had asked her father, "Should I be emulating Marlene Dietrich or something?" And he replied, "No, study everything you can about Louise Brooks."

"Tomorrow Belongs to Me" was written by John Kander and Fred Ebb in the style of a traditional German song to stir up patriotism for "the fatherland." It has often been mistaken for a genuine "Nazi anthem" and led to the songwriters being accused of anti-Semitism despite the fact that both were Jewish. It is also the only song sung outside of the cabaret setting.
