IN HERE, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

Willkommen. Bienvenue. Welcome to the Kit Kat Club. Home to an intimate and electrifying new production of CABARET.

Experience this groundbreaking musical like never before. The denizens of the Kit Kat Club have created a decadent sanctuary inside Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre, where artists and performers, misfits and outsiders rule the night. Step inside their world. This is Berlin. Relax. Loosen up. Be yourself.

London’s hottest ticket arrives on Broadway this Spring with Academy® and Tony Award® winner Eddie Redmayne reprising his Olivier Award-winning performance as the Emcee, and introducing Gayle Rankin as the Toast of Mayfair, Sally Bowles.

CABARET has music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff – based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Amazing. I've been wondering if they would do the alternate entrance like in London.

So I know previews haven't started yet and no one "knows," but if anyone has experience based on the London production - would you suggest buying the Two Ladies drink special ahead of time or buying drinks at the theatre. It would be nice to surprise my mom by having that treat set up ahead of time, but we're not big drinkers so if there are likely to be more options available at the bar than offered as part of the package (one mixer cocktails) I may wait.

Thanks if anyone has any suggestions!

I believe 60-75 minutes before curtain. Tickets have a designated entry time and location.

There will always be more options at the bar but there will most likely be a line/queue when you get there. 

In London, the theater had the coupe style champagne glass but somehow I think August Wilson will just have the sippy cup style available. But who knows?!?

My ticket does not include any of the food/drink packages, and on SeatGeek they instructed me to arrive 60 minutes before the performance starts (as well as which door to enter).

Given that Redmayne isn't performing on Monday evenings, will he not be in the first preview?

He won’t perform on Mondays starting June 17.

Their reduction of performances doesn't start until mid-June (if I'm remembering correctly) Seemed to correlate with Tony noms/voting.  So he should be there during previews at all performance, illiness/emergency notwithstanding.


If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Walked by today and seemingly can in person confirm the stage door entrance. Spoiler tagging in case anyone doens't want spoilers on the experience.

Coming from 7th, it looks to be the first door on the right. The green eye of the logo was on and music was pumping. Looked like a hallway passed that as well.

Looking at the seating chart, I see there are 4 seats in an upper box on the side that say limited view and go for relatively cheap at about $166.  For sure people will be wondering just how limited that view is.
