If Theatre Artists Studio chooses to produce a play, you know it’s a project that talented, experienced people are very passionate about. Honor and respect for the material also come standard. So although The Studio’s partially staged concert version of the evergreen, Tony-winning Cabaret won’t be as flashy or atmospheric as some, emotions and music (complete with a live, three-piece band) will take center stage, along with “light” choreography and additional songs from the film score.
“We hope to give audiences a renewed appreciation for the work and an empathy for and connection with the characters,” director (and dulcet-toned cast member) Shana Rebilas Bousard says in the press release. Slither on in to the Kit Kat Klub for this custom treat through Sunday, December 15, at 4848 East Cactus Road, Suite 406, in Scottsdale. Showtime Friday, November 29, is 7:30 p.m. For tickets, $10 to $20, call 602-765-0120 or visit www.thestudiophx.org.
