Theater News by Area Stage Company : Area Stage Company is set to present one of the most ambitious shows in its thirty-year history, an original production of Cabaret, directed by the innovative John Rodaz, the troupe's founder and Artistic Director. A story of love, ambition, and moral decay set at the decadent Kit Kat Klub during the rise of the Nazis in 1930's Berlin, the multiple Tony award-winning story features music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and book by Joe Masteroff.

Leading this production as Sally Bowles is Marilyn Caserta, a former Area Stage Conservatory actress who played the part as a young teenager in an early student production of Cabaret, and who has returned from a professional career in New York to reprise the part.

"We are delighted to work with Marilyn again," says Maria Banda-Rodaz, Area Stage's Executive Director. Both Banda-Rodaz and Rodaz worked with the actress for over five years before she moved to New York to pursue her acting career.

"When we decided to do this production, we immediately thought of Marilyn to play this iconic role," Director Rodaz says. "I am excited to see what she brings to the stage now that she has been working professionally."

A graduate from New York's Atlantic Theatre Company Acting school, the triple-threat actress has worked with Broadway producer Arthur Whitelaw (co-author of Charlie Brown, Snoopy the Musical, and Charlie Brown Christmas) and with Kevin Stites, musical director for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Marilyn also played the part of Rosalia in West Side Story directed by choreographer Joey McKneely at the Asolo Rep Theater in Sarasota. Other recent regional credits include West Side Story and Sondheim on Sondheim at Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre and the student productions of Chicago and Les Misérables at Area Stage.

With an 18-member cast and seven onstage musicians, this production of Cabaret will re-conceive the 1998 revival by Sam Mendes, offering a new perspective to Harold Prince's groundbreaking original production.

Cabaret follows the success of Area Stage Company's dynamic and critically acclaimed production of Shrek the Musical this spring. Cabaret opens August 10th and runs through August 26th, with performances Friday to Sunday at Area Stage Company at the Riviera Plaza in Coral Gables.

This production is presented with permission by Actors' Equity Association.
