I thought this night couldn’t get any better, I was wrong! 

Cabaret+Muppets=HAPPINESS EXPLOSION

Was hanging out in Kitten-Burrito’s/Carrie’s stream!


Muppet Mondays! YAYYYY! 

P.S. And Then Joel did Razzle Dazzle from Chicago. Further Happiness.

11.  Cabaret

This is one of those rare musicals that is redefined over and over again. In the original, Joel Gray played the MC. 

But I have also seen amazing productions where a woman played the MC. And another production where a woman MC pretended to be a man. 

The material is so strong that in the end it doesn’t matter. The MC is one of those great musical theatre roles can stand up to just about anything.
