Thoughts on Cabaret

Friday, May 13, 2011 7:18 PM By Simon

Michael York is an Englishmen travelling is Weismar republic-era Germany, teaching English to supplement his income. He meets MPDG-deconstructed Liza Minelli, a singer at the local Kit Kat Club. The two and friends navigate various romantic entanglements, half-oblivious to the rise of the Nazi party.

-For a musical, this was kind of terrifying. I mean, the last shot. Shit.

-Joel Gray amuses as the asexual, apolitical, 'Wilkommen [...]' Emcee. Liza Minelli flits around, as said, starting out as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl for the European Beginner, but slowly subverts all expectations as her actions actually have, like, consequences. Michael York is pretty and British.

-Is it weird that, until now, I've only known 'Mein Herr' as that song Amanda Palmer sings a fucking lot?

Amanda Palmer has no eyebrows and therefore cannot be trusted. Just saying. Also, I may or may not have given you an STD (its the good kind, just check my most recent post)

I'm glad you got a chance to see Cabaret! One of my all-time favorite musicals (& movies in general). Bob Fosse was a genius.

I'm not sure if I'd call the Emcee "asexual"... maybe just androgynous? Or polymorphously perverse? Incidentally, he was totally played on-stage recently BY Amanda Palmer. Who is clearly an avowed Cabaret fan, and has also covered "I Don't Care Much" (which isn't in the movie) on occasion.

Anyway... Amanda Palmer! Cabaret! Really dark, political musicals! All awesome things.

One of the few musicals I actually enjoyed! You are correct about Michael York.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.
