Cabaret Verboten

800
Cabaret Verboten explores Germany’s Weimar era art-scene, a hotbed of music, theatre, and art designed to use satire and irony to expose corruption and social injustice in the face of the Nazi machine’s insidious advance. Bold, provocative and titillating, Cabaret Verboten features the biting music, songs and scenes of Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler, Bertolt Brecht, Friedrich Hollaender, Mischa Spoliansky and Marcellus Schiffer. The cabaret of the day reflected society’s degeneration, dripping in decadence and menace, and dealt with social issues in stunning music and song that resonates as if written today. A perfect Arts Garage production, Cabaret Verboten embodies the raw and edgy sensibility of this Delray Beach venue, and the provocative intellectual sexiness of an art form best suited for highly entertaining social commentary. Performances for Cabaret Verboten are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday evenings at 7:30; Saturday afternoons at 2:00 p.m.; and Sunday evenings at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25-$35. www. artsgarage.org or call 561-450-6357
