Organization: STUDENT LIFE Event Locator: 2022-AAGRRX The Iona Players return with a production of “Cabaret” for their spring musical, taking the stage on March 31 and April 1, 2023. This production is sure to excite and dare viewers to examine human nature and the culture surrounding them.   OVERVIEW Cabaret is a musical that takes place in the Kit Kat Klub, a cabaret in Berlin amidst the backdrop of the Nazi Party’s steady rise to power. The play contains antisemitism and Nazi imagery.   Set against the tumult and sheer chaos of Germany’s 1929 Berlin, the alluring emcee invites all to engage in willful ignorance and revel in the lustful delights inside the legendary Kit Kat Club. “Here…life is beautiful.” With hedonistic abandon, these riveting characters live life as a carnival of debauchery and despair. Winning Tony Awards for Best Musical for the 1966 Broadway premiere and for Best Revival of a Musical in 1998, this provocative and challenging style of storytelling packs a potent punch on the dangers of mass indifference in the face of injustice and atrocities and asks audiences to either act now or say “so what?”   DETAILS Murphy Auditorium, Iona University March 31 @ 7 p.m., and April 1 @ 2 p.m. & 7 p.m. TICKETS – General Admission: $10 Iona University Students, Faculty, and Staff are able to access one (1) complimentary ticket for one of the shows additional tickets will be available at the door for 45 minutes before showtime.   AUDIENCE STATEMENT OF EMPOWERMENT The Iona Players recognize that art can provoke; therefore, during the course of this performance, patrons are empowered to leave if themes or situations make them uncomfortable.
