Cabaret - One4Review
Deep Blue Theatre have been a must on our Fringe list ever since their production of Chess two years ago, so I was delighted to see that they were back and with two shows not one. It was decided that I should cover Cabaret and I have to admit was looking forward to it, but came away feeling a little flat. All the ingredients were there, two menacing M.C.s Kit Kat Club girls that danced, posed and well, an excellent band and generally good singing voices. I felt at times the direction did little for me and the use of props on the minimalistic set did not assist this feeling. There is however a bright shining light, at that is the stage presence and truly magnificent singing voice of Saratha Rajeswaran as Sally Bowles. Her performance is worth the admission money on it’s own. If she doesn’t become a major musical star there is no justice in this world. *** Alternating with Cabaret is Guys and Dolls, which will be covered shortly.
