The film version of the stage musical starred Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey and was directed by legendary choreographer Bob Fosse. All three won Oscars for their respective contributions to the film which won a total of 8 Academy Awards but lost the Oscar for Best Film to The Godfather.
Cabaret is also a style of performing that is very intimate between a solo singer and an audience, featuring novelty songs, torch songs, plus popular or theatrical standards.
The term “cabaret” is also used to describe a small nightclub or space that features tables and chairs rather than theatre seats, with a bar and oftentimes a kitchen for ordering a late night dinner.
Etymology: “Cabaret” first appeared in the 1650’s as a variant of 13th century French word camberete meaning “small room,” from which we also derive “chamber.”
Jay Rogers won the MAC Award for his amazing cabaret act.
Liza Minnelli will perform at the cabaret to keep the show intimate.
