Playhouse on Park co-founder Sean Harris directs a great young cast in a production of Cabaret, the Tony Award-winning 1998 revival version set in 1920s Berlin's Kit Kat Klub, where shady characters transport audiences into a seedy world of debauchery. After two preview shows, the official opening night performance on June 14 starts with a wine and cheese reception from 7-8 p.m.; or go to the Sunday, June 16 show for a cast talk-back. An open mic happens after the performance on June 22.
June 14-July 21, $32.50-$42.50, Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Road, Hartford, (860) 523-5900 ext. 10, playhouseonpark.org.
