Editorial Reviews

This original cast recording of Kander & Ebb's Cabaret is tough to beat: Jill Haworth as Sally Bowles, Joel Grey as the Master of Ceremonies, and Lotte Lenya as Fraulein Schneider all turn in classic performances that set a high-water mark for future reinterpretations. Lenya's "So What?" and "It Couldn't Please Me More" hark back to the dark cabaret work composed by her late husband, Kurt Weill, while other tunes ("Telephone Song," "Two Ladies") are much more upbeat. One of the best surprises found on this version--featuring liner notes by author Ken Mandelbaum--are the four previously unreleased (and fascinating) Kander & Ebb demo cuts and four brief intros for songs. The eight rarities are all low-fidelity but highlight the songwriting process of the pair nicely. --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic! December 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Those who know "Cabaret" only from the popular movie version staring Liza Minnelli are missing quite a lot. The original Broadway cast recording is a delight fom start to finish. With a cast lead by Lotte Lenya as Fraulein Schneider, Jack Gilferd as Herr Schultz, Jill Haworth as Sally, Bert Convy as Cliff, and Joel Grey as the emcee, we know we are in good hands from the first note of music. The recording starts with Grey's definitive version of "Willkommen," in which the sinister emcee invites us into the seemingly lovely, but downright evil world of Berlin in the early 1930's. From then on, it's a string of hits, including well known songs like "Tommorrow Belongs to Me," "If You Could See Her," and the title song. This recording also has lesser known, but equally wonderful songs not included in the movie, such as "So What?," "Perfectly Marvelous," "Married," and my personal favorite: "Meeskite." The movie version may be silver, but this is gold. Buy it today, and enjoy "Cabaret" in all it's original glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfectly Marvelous Recording January 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ah, Cabaret. The Original Broadway Cast Recording isn't the same as the show you can see on Broadway today, or the 1972 film - but it's still remarkable in its own right. True, the script left out Cliff's bisexuality, but that doesn't really affect the recording. And what a recording it is!
Joel Grey starts matters off with "Willkommen," and this sets the tone for the rest of the recording. Grey, whose impish performance was recreated for the film, is still remarkable fun. His numbers are fun, yes, but they also make brilliant, dark commentary on the show's events - particularly "If You Could See Her," even though that used a compromise line in the very end. Jill Haworth plays the immortal character of Sally Bowles with style, and her rendition of "Cabaret" is stunning. We don't hear much of Bert Convy's Cliff (it's mostly a speaking role), but his solo "Why Should We Wake Up?" is a treat nonetheless.
Then, we have the "comic couple" of the traditional musical - played here by Lotte Lenya and Jack Gilford as Fraulein Schneider and Herr Schultz, respectively. Lenya was a legend, and with good cause - from the first note of "It Couldn't Please Me More," you will doubt that anybody else could ever play Fraulein Schneider. And while I'm not all that fond of "Meeskite," Gilford is wonderful in the beautiful duets "It Couldn't Please Me More" and "Married." It's worth noting that there is some beautiful choral work here, particularly on the song "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" - which is a lovely, lingering number all about the Nazi message. It's with "Tomorrow..." that we really feel the underlying sickness of Cabaret, and its true genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Im Cabaret, Au Cabaret, To Cabaret June 5, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
That chilling introductory drumroll and cymbal crash, followed by the equally chilling sound of Joel Grey's voice singing "Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome," is enough to tell the listener that CABARET is an exceptional show and that its original cast recording is exceptional, too. In CABARET, realistic book scenes are interspersed with floor show-style sequences that comment on the action. The result is a moving, disturbing take on the rise of the Nazis in 1930's Berlin. There is no question that the librettist/composer/ lyricist team of Joe Masteroff, John Kander, and Fred Ebb - aided by the innovative staging of director Harold Prince - created a revolutionary musical in CABARET. The recording is justly dominated by Grey's epicene Master of Ceremonies, while Bert Convy and Jill Haworth are in wonderful voice as the two lovers (just listen to Convy's gloriously sung "Why Should I Wake Up?"). However, the "secondary couple" - the legendary Lotte Lenya as Fraulein Schneider and Jack Gilford as her Jewish suitor, Herr Schultz - are the stars here. Lenya (aided by two character-defining solos, "So What?" and "What Would You Do?") gives a vivid characterization of the aging landlady whose engagement to Schultz is doomed, while Gilford sings his part of the duet "Married" with affecting simplicity and is adorably droll in the comic narrative "Meeskite." The orchestral playing is spectacular and the digitally remastered sound equally so. And included as one of eight bonus tracks on this reissue is Kander and Ebb's haunting rendition of "I Don't Care Much," a song cut from the original production (but restored in the recent revival). This has quickly become one of my favorite original Broadway cast recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original "Cabaret" July 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While the 1972 movie starring Liza Minnelli is probably the most well-known version of "Cabaret", this 1966 Broadway version is where it all started.

Led by a talented cast, including Jill Haworth (Sally Bowles), Lotte Lenya (Fraulein Schneider), and the incredible Joel Grey (Master Of Ceremonies), this Kander & Ebb musical is excellent and contains a classic score.

Best tracks include:

Wilkommen (Mr. Grey's signature song)

Two Ladies

It Couldn't Please Me More

Tomorrow Belongs To Me

The Money Song


If You Could See Her


One should note, however, that two classic "Sally Bowles" songs were added for the movie: "Mein Herr" & "Maybe This Time".

This is a great cd! ... but if you want a version that includes these songs, try the movie soundtrack or the 1999 Revival Cast (which also includes "I Don't Care Much").
